Small Cell Infrastructure
The City of Santa Rosa is receiving growing numbers of requests from wireless providers and wireless infrastructure companies to construct small cell facilities in the public right of way. Small cells are expected to be installed on either City streetlights or PG&E wooden utility poles.
Small Cell facilities are low-powered antennas that provide cellular and data coverage to smaller geographic areas, supplementing the larger cellular network and improving service for wireless customers.
Encroachment Permit Process
Applications - All are reviewed for consistency with Chapter 13 of the City Code and the City's Design and Construction Standards. All ground and pole equipment must be installed in a fashion that avoids impacting safe pedestrian travel, eliminates conflicts with existing utilities and creates a clear line of site for vehicular traffic. Applicants are required to implement traffic and pedestrian control measures throughout the course of construction to ensure that the environment remains safe for the public.
Public Notice - Public notice for City owned poles and joint poles follows the standard encroachment permitting process prior to construction, and is limited to residents potentially affected by construction or installation. The permit applicant is required to perform the noticing. The notification must clearly identify the project and provide contact information for questions or concerns.
