At its July 24, 2019 public hearing, the Yakima Planning Commission heard the staff presentation regarding the proposed amendment and considered oral testimony from Greggory Busch and Jason Verduzco. a. Greggory Busch, on behalf of Wireless Policy Group, provided testimony related to the FCC being the exclusive entity to regulate wireless frequency, suggested clarification to YMC 15.27.070(9)(c). b. Jason Verduzco, on behalf of Verizon Wireless, concurred with the previous testimony provided, and added testimony related to clarification of the definition of"Tower." 5. Based on comments submitted by WSDOT related to cooperative testing, a draft section was added to the YPC staff report to YMC 15.29.060(H). Subsequent comments and testimony related to FCC regulations prompted removal of this section, as the FCC is the exclusive reviewer of wireless frequencies.

Goals.The goals of this chapter are to: I. Enhance the ability oflgeriaaini wireless service providers to provide such services throughout the city quickly,effectively,and 0111Mo/fly: 2. Encourage piantimiTwireless service providers to locate towers and antennas in nonresidential areas; 3. Encourage poesonal wireless service providers to co-locate on new and existing tower sites; 4. Encourage pieniiimal-wiminas service providers to locate towers and antennas,to the extent possible,in areas where the adverse impact on city residents is minimal; 5. Encourage itarsouni wireless service providers to configure towers and antennas in a way that minimizes any significant adverse visual impact;and 6. Provide for the wireless communications needs of governmental entities. Accordingly,the city council finds that the promulgation of this chapter is warranted and necessary: 1. To manage the location of towers and antennas in the city; 2. To protect residential areas and land uses from potential adverse impacts of towers; 3. To minimize adverse visual impacts of towers through careful design,siting,landscape,screening,and innovative camouflaging techniques; I' 8 Chapter 15.29 WIRELESS COMMUNICATION Page 276/315 FACILITIES 4. To accommodate an increased need for towers to serve the wireless communications needs of city residents; 5. To promote and encourage col-location on existing and new towers as an option rather than construction of additional single-use towers,and to reduce the number of such structures needed in the future; 6. To consider the public health and safety of towers to the extent permitted by the Telecommunications Act of 1996;and 7. To avoid potential damage to adjacent properties through sound engineering practices and the proper siting of antenna support structures. B.

The purpose of this chapter is to establish general guidelines for the siting of wireless 19-1-19-Ufifeafacilities, including towers,antennas and support structures A Goals The goals of this chapter are to I. Enhance the ability of pauxionalwireless service providers to provide such services throughout the city quickly,effectively,and efficiently; 2 Encourage peRnual-wireless service providers to locate towers and antennas in nonresidential areas; 3 Encourage perseradwireless service providers to co-locate on new arid existing tower sites; 4 Encourage sesvorsislwirrless service providers to locate towers and antennas,to the extent possible,in areas where the adverse impact on city residents is minimal; 5, Encourage persurmlwireless service providers to configure towers and antennas in a way that minimizes any significant adverse visual impact;and 6, Provide for the wireless communications needs of governmental entities Accordingly,the city council finds that the promulgation of this chapter is warranted and necessary: 1. To manage the location of towers and antennas in the city; 2. To protect residential areas and land uses from potential adverse impacts of towers; 3. To minimize adverse visual impacts of towers through careful design,siting,landscape,screening,and innovative camouflaging techniques; wl 42 Chapter 15 29 WIRELESS COMMUNICATION Page 276/315 FACILITIES 4 To accommodate an increased need for towers to serve the wireless comnnutteationo needs of city residents; 5 To promote and encourage col-location on existing and new towers as an option rather than construction of additional single-use towers,and to reduce the number of such structures needed in the future; 6, To consider the public health and safety of towers to the extent permitted by the Telecommunications Act of 1996;and 7.

The purpose of this chapter is to establish general guidelines for the siting of wireless _facilities, including towers,antennas and support structures. A. Goals. The goals of this chapter are to: 1. Enhance the ability of personal-wireless service providers to provide such services throughout the city quickly,effectively,and efficiently; 2. Encourage personal wireless service providers to locate towers and antennas in nonresidential areas; 3. Encourage — wireless service providers to co-locate on new and existing tower sites; 4. Encourage no -wireless service providers to locate towers and antennas,to the extent possible, in areas where the adverse impact on city residents is minimal; 5. Encourage fiefs inwireless service providers to configure towers and antennas in a way that minimizes any significant adverse visual impact;and 6. Provide for the wireless communications needs of governmental entities. Accordingly,the city council finds that the promulgation of this chapter is warranted and necessary: 1. To manage the location of towers and antennas in the city; 2. To protect residential areas and land uses from potential adverse impacts of towers; 3. To minimize adverse visual impacts of towers through careful design,siting, landscape, screening, and innovative camouflaging techniques; : P 78 Chapter 15.29 WIRELESS CurvIMUNICATION Page 276/315 FACILITIES 4. To accommodate an increased need for towers to serve the wireless eo-mmanications needs of city residents; 5. To promote and encourage col-location on existing and new towers as an option rather than construction of additional single-use towers,and to reduce the number of such structures needed in the future; 6. To consider the public health and safety of towers to the extent permitted by the Telecommunications Act of 1996;and 7. To avoid potential damage to adjacent properties through sound engineering practices and the proper siting of antenna support structures. B. New Uses. All new-telecomminic-mien towers, small wirelesseell tacilit les antennas and support structures shall comply with this chapter-after+he-efitctive-date-ollthe-ordinance-• M-this-c4tapter. C. Existing Uses. All telecommunication towers and antennas existing on the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter that are not in compliance with this chapter shall be allowed to continue as they presently exist, but will be considered nonconforming uses. Routine maintenance shall be permitted on existing towers and antennas. However,new construction other than modifications madgpurstiant in$ection_6409(21)of the_Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012 and 47 CFR SectiQn 1.600,and routine maintenance on existing towersrantennas.--bi+i-liiings-or other-facilities shall comply with the requirements of this chapter. D. Facilitation of Wireless Service. These standards were designed to comply with the Telecommunications Act of 1996,and subsequent federal regulations. The provisions of this chapter are not intended to and shall not be interpreted to prohibit or to have the effect of prohibiting personal-wireless services. This chapter shall not be applied in such a manner as to unreasonably discriminate between providers of functionally equivalent personal- wireless services. E. Conflict with Other Standards. To the extent that any provision of this chapter is inconsistent or conflicts with any other city ordinance this chapter shall control.Otherwise,this chapter shall be construed consistently with the other provisions and regulations of the city.

Parsonal-wWireless service providers use various methodologies and analyses, including geographically based computer software,to determine the specific technical parameters of their wireless services and low-power-mobile nacho service facilities,such as expected coverage area,antenna configuration,topographic constraints that affect signal paths,etc. In certain instances,a third-party expert may need to review the technical data submitted by a provider.The city may require a technical review as part of a permitting process for a variance or conditional use permit. The costs of the technical review shall be borne by the provider. The selection of the third-party expert may be by mutual agreement between the provider and the city,or,at the discretion of the city, with a provision for the provider and interested parties to comment on the proposed expert and review its qualifications. The expert review is intended to address interference and public safety issues and be a site- specific review of technical aspects of the facilities or a review of the providers' methodology and equipment used and not a subjective review of the site that was selected by a provider. Based on the results of the expert review,the city may require changes to the provider's application. The expert review shall address the following: 1. The accuracy and completeness of submissions; 2. The applicability of analysis techniques and methodologies; 3. The validity of conclusions reached;and 4. Any specific technical issues designated by the city. (Ord.2016-029 § 1 (Exh. A)(part),2016: Ord.2013- 051 §2(Exh. A)(part),2013). 15.29.150 Nonuse/abandonment. A. Notice of Abandonment.No less than thirty days prior to the date that a personal wireless service provider plans to abandon or discontinue operation of a facility,the provider must notify the city of Yakima by certified U.S, mail of the proposed date of abandonment or discontinuation of operation. In the event that a I-leer-Nod- earrierprovider fails to give notice,the facility shall be considered abandoned upon the city's discovery of DOC. 105 Chapter 15.29 WIRELESS CGMUNICATION Page 303/315 FACILITIES discontinuation of operation. Upon such abandonment, the provider shall have sixty days or additional period of time determined in the reasonable discretion of the city within which to: 1. Reactivate the use of the facility or transfer the facility to another provider who makes actual use of the facility; or 2. In the event that abandonment as defined in this chapter occurs due to relocation of an antenna at a lower point on the antenna support structure,reduction in the effective radiated power of the antenna or reduction in the number of transmissions from the antennas, the operator of the tower shall have six months from the date of effective abandonment to co-locate another service on the tower. If another service provider is not added to the tower,then the operator shall promptly dismantle and remove the portion of the tower that exceeds the minimum height required to function satisfactorily.Notwithstanding the foregoing,changes which are made to per wireless facilities which do not diminish their essential role in providing a total system shall not constitute abandonment. However, in the event that there is a physical reduction in height of substantially all of the provider's towers in the city or surrounding arca then all of the towers within the city shall similarly be reduced in height; or, 3. Dismantle and Remove Facility. If the tower, antenna, foundation, and facility are not removed within the sixty-day time period or additional period of time allowed by the city,the city may remove such tower, antenna, foundation, and related facility at the provider's expense. If there are two or more providers co- locating on a facility,except as provided for in subsection(A)(2)of this section,this provision shall not become effective until all providers cease using the facility or 4, If the entail-celt-Itteil-i-ty-is-4m-atet1oti-e•utility:pole owned-by-the k7ityrth — ke-11-feeilitY-sliall-be-ternomed from-the e.

We appreciate the work that the city is now doing to comply with the recent FCC Order, "Accelerating,Wireless Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment, Declaratory Ruling and Third Rqport and Order(September 26, 2018)" which contains extensive new requirements for regulating small wireless facilities mthe right ofway. Staff has been very responsive in addressing other technical and logistical issues during the planning commission process, especially inthe area of small wireless technology. Verizon supports the direction of the draft code, as presented, with a few remaining 'issues: � Section l5.29.06O(H) requires cooperative testing with the Washington Department of Transportation for potential interference and to submit proof of such testing tmthe Planning Department.

Verizon requests that language be added to clarify that new support structures for small wireless facilities are not considered towers. w Section 15.29.13OA/1\ states that a computer generated "zone of visibility" map for new towers may be required to show within a one mile radius where the tower can beseen. To date, there isno software available to create such amap and no recognized consultants that can assist. Verizon requests that this section be deleted.

Any new facilities proposed shall provide to WSDOT and local public safety agencies contact information including their local field engineer/technicians, proposed operating frequencies and turn- on date. Proponents agree to cooperative testing and reasonable efforts to mitigate interference as required such as the addition of protective devices and/or filters, as needed.

Attention: Joseph Calhoun, Planning Manager NNING Ow Subject: Amend Yakima Municipal Code,Text#002-19 and SEPA#026-19, YMC Chapter 15.29 Wireless Communication Facilities We have reviewed the proposed municipal code changes regarding wireless communication facilities and have the following comments. As a public safety agency,WSDOT assists with the response to emergencies in which life and property are threatened. Some communications facilities operate at frequencies that interfere with our radio system. Because of this,there is the potential for reception problems for our mobiles operating in those areas. To prevent potential interference between the two systems,we suggest adding development standards to require subsequent proponents of new facilities or co-location near(within 500 feet) the Interstate 82,US Highway 12 and State Route 24 corridors to complete cooperative testing with the WSDOT to identify any problems that may be corrected through the installation of specific protective or interference devices.
