Communications Tower Policy

To encourage cooperation between Yellowhead County and applicants which will result in the development of new and enhanced wireless services and coverage in the County and to establish a framework for the review and evaluation of wireless communication tower proposals with a goal to minimize adverse land-use impacts of wireless towers within the County.

Yellowhead County is expanding upon its utility communications network that supports broadband, mobility and public safety communications and requires all applicants to make every effort to collocate on Yellowhead County-owned utility towers. In situations where Yellowhead County does not have a tower and private towers are required, the applicant must utilize best efforts to provide tower space for Yellowhead County public safety equipment and collocation opportunities to other potential wireless providers.
