The Director of Planning and Community Development or his or her designee may prepare and disseminate information concerning the placement and installation of satellite earth station antennas in accordance with voluntary guidelines that will help to achieve the City's safety related objectives and to promote reasonable aesthetic objectives in order to maintain property values. This information may include, without limitation, the following:
A. Installers of satellite earth station antennas who are licensed to conduct business within the City.
B. Federal regulations promulgated by the FCC that preempt governmental and nongovernmental restrictions on antenna users who occupy residential units, including residential units subject to homeowner association CC&Rs and residential units within multiple-dwelling complexes, whether owner occupied or tenant occupied.
C. The availability to existing or prospective antenna users of "no fee" safety related inspections by the City.
D. Guidelines relating to the preferred placement of satellite earth station antennas in order to reduce or eliminate their visibility from adjacent public streets, including the use of screening materials, such as walls, fences, earth berms, or landscaping, or the addition of new architectural elements that are compatible with the design of adjacent buildings.
E. Guidelines relating to preferred neutral finished colors of satellite earth station antennas, which colors are determined to blend with surrounding dominant colors, or to camouflage an antenna, and are neither bright, reflective, nor metallic. (Ord. 05-O-2461, eff. 3-18-2005)
