Wireless Telecommunications Facilities butterfly

NEW! The Wireless Telecommunications Ordinance and Wireless Design Manual were adopted at the Council's January 15, 2020, meeting. The new wireless standards and regulations were imbended in the Pacific Code Municipal Code - Title 23 (Zoning) and the Design Manual is a stand-alone document. These regulations will be applied to the development of Wireless Facilities outside of the public rights-of-way. Questions regarding the Wireless Ordinance or Design Manual can be directed to Alyson Hunter, Senior Planner at (831) 648-3127, or via email.

The Wireless regulations are a part of the City of Pacific Grove's recently adopted Ordinance No. 20-001.

The City of Pacific Grove adopted Ordinance No.18-019 which added Pacific Grove Municipal Code Chapter 15.26. This Chapter provides standards and regulations regarding location, placement, design and construction of telecommunications facilities (including traditional telecommunications towers, antennas, and other structures) within the public rights of way consistent with Federal and State law.
