(a) Application. Upon approval by the Planning and Zoning Commission, the permit application must be reviewed and approved by the Architectural Review Board. In addition to any standard Architectural Review Board submission requirements, pursuant to Chapter 1327, the applicant shall provide the following information:
(1) The location of any electrical or signal transmitting wires or cables to be used;
(2) The specific antenna support structure device which is to be used;
(3) The proposed method of screening the antenna support structure to make it as inconspicuous as possible and help it blend into the surrounding area, where feasible;
(4) Elevation drawings illustrating the placement, height, color and material of the antenna and its support structure; and
(5) A plot plan of the lot, premises, parcel of land and adjacent parcels showing, among other things, the exact location of the proposed antenna and its support structures, the exact location and dimensions of all buildings on the parcel and adjacent parcels and property lines.
If the information provided above does not clearly convey placement alternatives on the site, the Architectural Review Board may require an independent evaluation of signal access for a minimum of the three most feasible, alternative locations on the site. The evaluation shall be prepared by a consultant approved by the Architectural Review Board and paid for by the applicant.
(b) Architectural Review and Findings. Prior to approval of an installation, the Architectural Review Board shall find as follows:
(1) There is no other location on the site for the proposed antenna support structure which would result in a less conspicuous or more aesthetically pleasing installation while still providing reasonable signal access.
(2) The antenna and its support structure are the smallest possible for the frequency used and optimally located to allow reasonable signal access.
(3) Apart from the tower or monopole structure, the facility appurtenances shall be aesthetically and architecturally compatible with the architecture of the surrounding environment.
(4) The color of the structure blends with the surrounding environmental characteristics.
