Collocation Agreement Fcc

Posted on

It should be noted that the agreement relates only to the FCC`s review process, in accordance with Section 106 of the NHPA, and does not limit the authority of public and local governments to enforce their own requirements for the conservation of historic monuments, in accordance with Section 332(c)(7) of the Commission and Section 6409(a) of the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012. In addition, the conditions of the amendment do not apply to tribal areas. The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau announced that the FCC, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, and the National Conference of State History Conservation Officers (the Parties) have made a second amendment to the National Programmatic Agreement for Wireless Antenna Collocation (COLLOCATION NPA). This amendment facilitates the collocation of wireless devices on existing towers by eliminating the section 106 verification of the National Historic Preservation Act for certain collisions involving limited extension beyond the boundaries of a tower. The collocation NPA, completed in 2001 and modified in 2016, excludes collisions that involve a considerable expansion of the tower, including excavations outside the current tower site. In contrast, the National Programmatic Agreement for Section 106 National Historic Preservation Act Review Process (NPA), which was implemented later in 2004, includes an exclusion from section 106 verification for the replacement of a tower with no more than 30 feet of excavation in all directions outside the boundaries of an existing tower. For the sake of consistency, the parties agreed to modify the COLLOCATION NPA to avoid a collocation that would not widen the boundaries of the current tower site by more than 30 feet, nor would it involve excavations outside these expanded boundaries, provided that the collection meets the other exclusion criteria. This change takes effect with publication in the Federal Register. In other comments, the Zayo Group – a provider of infrastructure, neutral network collococation and related telecommunications services – enthusiastically supported the agreement and recommended that the FCC consider modifying the restrictions imposed on La Elle, and said that these “restrictions result in significant technical constraints on the ability of mobile operators and their infrastructure partners to adopt the most efficient and more efficient wireless To bring solutions to market. and, as a result, increases costs and reduces the availability of high-speed wireless services. The current collocation agreement provides for the exclusion of collisions outside historic districts from buildings and non-tournaires structures that are no more than 45 years old. The proposed amendment to the collocation agreement would add new provisions: the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has, in collaboration with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) and the National Conference of Conservation Officers in State History (NCSHPO), the first constitutional amendment to the Nationwide Programmatic Agreement for the Collocation of Wireless Antennas (Collocation Agreement) in recognition of the limited potential for small wireless antennas and associated devices, in order to harm historical properties. . .
