Small Wireless Facilities Deployment

Over previous legislative sessions, the General Assembly has introduced bills preempting local government zoning authority to manage the placement of small cell infrastructure in the local rights-of-way. The League has opposed these bills because of the preemption provisions.

The League supports the deployment of small cells across the Commonwealth and looks forward to continuing conversations in the 2021/2022 legislative session to achieve ease of deployment without pre-empting local government authority.
