(A) Building-mounted antennas of the non-whip type are allowed on nonresidential buildings and structures, provided the antenna is mounted flush with the exterior of the building so that it projects no more than 30 inches from the surface of the building to which it is attached and the antenna’s appearance is such as to blend with the surrounding surface of the building.
(B) Associated equipment shall be placed either within the same building or in a separate building which matches the existing building in character and building materials or blends with the landscaping and other surroundings immediately adjacent to the separate building housing the equipment. Associated equipment for roof-mounted antennas may be located on the roof of the building if it is not visible from the street.
(C) Before the Building Official may issue a building permit and at the time of application for a building permit to locate an antenna support structure or antenna on an existing building or other structure, the Building Official shall be provided with color photo simulations showing the site of the existing structure with a photo-realistic representation of both the proposed support structure and the existing structure or any proposed reconstruction of the structure as it would appear viewed from the closest residential property or from a distance of 1/4 mile in the direction of the nearest residentially zoned property, whichever distance is less. The applicant shall also submit photographs of the same views showing the current appearance of the site without the proposed construction.
(D) Before the Building Official may issue a building permit and at the time of application for a building permit to locate an antenna support structure or antenna on an existing building or other structure, the Building Official shall be provided with an engineer certification that the roof and/or other support structure will support the proposed antenna and all associated equipment.
