(A) Purpose. The purpose of this section is to encourage the orderly development of residential and commercial neighborhoods to further the present harmonious nature of Monrovia's built and natural environment and to maintain property values. It is the intent of this section to promote an orderly regulation of the appearance and location of transmitting antennae, not to prevent their placement. All regulations set forth here are not to be considered pre-emptive of federal regulations.
(B) Permits and review. All private transmitting antennae, including but not limited to amateur radio antennae and low-power television antennae, shall be located on a property pursuant to the guidelines set forth below. Such antennae may also require a building permit per Title 15.
(C) Any private transmitting antenna shall be reviewed by the Development Review Committee pursuant to the following guidelines:
(1) The antennae shall have a reasonable relationship with the height and massing of the main building on the site;
(2) The placement of the antennae and any support structures shall be such that visual clutter shall be minimized while affording reasonable transmitting and receiving capabilities;
(3) The use of collapsible or telescoping towers shall be considered when the use of such towers is limited and the retracted location, height and relationship meets the other review guidelines.
(D) Notice shall be given to adjacent property owners of date and time of the review hearing.
