How will cellular providers seek approval to install a Small Wireless Facility (SWF)?
Cellular providers will be required to submit the location of the SWF for review and recommendation by the Telecommunications Transmission Facility Coordinating Committee (TTFCC). If the TTFCC recommends that the SWF be approved, the provider must then apply for a permit. The type of permit varies depending on where the SWF will be located. Under the terms of the permit, providers must install a complete SWF that is capable of actually providing service at the time the permit is closed. They must begin work within 60 days of permit issuance and the permit will have a 6-month life span. Additionally, if the SWF is to be located in the County right-of-way, a Master License Agreement will be required.
