  AMENDED ORDER
  IN CITY COUNCIL
  October 21, 2013
COUNCILLOR MAHER

WHEREAS: There have been several recent applications for new cell phone towers in Cambridge; and
   

WHEREAS:

Some of these sites are either on residential buildings or directly abut residential neighborhoods with neighbors feeling they were given little advance notice; now therefore be it
      

ORDERED:

That the City Manager be and hereby is requested to report back to the City Council on exploring the possibility of enacting a moratorium or other mechanism including a possible ordinance change restricting new cell phone towers until we have a clear policy on placement of such towers in residential neighborhoods and a clear process for alerting neighbors of the installation of these towers and ensuring that their feedback is heard before the towers are installed.
