This work begins in 2022.
Jurisdictions are required by the FCC to have specific regulations for permitting communication facilities. This is typically achieved by having a dedicated section to permitting these types of development. Wasco County will develop a standalone chapter for this type of development.
Staff also received some feedback during Wasco County 2040 from community members concerned about potential visual or health impacts from communication facilities. The opportunity to explore mitigation methods or techniques will also be part of this update task.
