7-19-7: DESIGN STANDARDS APPLICABLE TO SMALL WIRELESS FACILITIES ON NEW STAND-ALONE UTILITY POLES:
If an applicant proposes to install a new stand-alone utility pole in connection with a small wireless facility, the pole and facilities shall, in addition to the requirements of section 7-19-5 of this chapter, meet the following design standards:
   A.   Design of the pole shall be cylindrical and shall match the aesthetics of existing streetlight poles and streetlights installed adjacent to the pole.
   B.   Together with the small wireless facility components shall be sized to be visually pleasing.
      1.   For a pole to be considered visually pleasing, the transition between the equipment cabinet and upper pole should be considered;
      2.   The equipment associated with the small wireless facility shall be enclosed at the base of the wireless support structure in a space described in subsection 7-19-5A5 of this chapter, provided that if a separate equipment cabinet or vault not exceeding twenty eight (28) cubic feet in size may be used if the equipment cannot reasonably be contained in the space allowed;
      3.   A decorative transition shall be installed over the equipment cabinet upper bolts, or decorative base cover shall be installed to match the equipment cabinet size and shall taper between different pole diameters, with no horizontal or flat spaces greater than 1.5 inches;
      4.   The upper pole shall be scaled to 0.5 to 0.75 the size of the equipment cabinet, with a ten inch (10") minimum outer diameter at the widest portion of the pole;
      5.   All hardware connections shall be hidden from view;
      6.   No horizontal flat spaces greater than 1.5 inches shall exist on the equipment cabinet to prevent cups, trash, and other objects from being placed on the equipment cabinet;
      7.   Each pole component shall be architecturally compatible to create a cohesive aesthetic; and
      8.   The pole shall be made of steel and shall be powder coated black.
   C.   Shall not be located within one hundred feet (100') of the apron of a fire station or other adjacent emergency service facility.
   D.   Shall be placed in alignment with existing trees, utility poles, and streetlights.
   E.   Shall be located such that it in no way impedes, obstructs, or hinders the usual pedestrian or vehicular travel, affect public safety, obstruct the legal access to or use of the public ROW, violate applicable law, violate or conflict with public ROW design standards, specifications, or design district requirements, violate the Federal Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, or in any way create a risk to public health, safety, or welfare.
   F.   Shall be located at intersecting property lines as much as possible.
   G.   Whenever possible, shall be located on the secondary street.
   H.   Shall be located a minimum of fifteen feet (15') away from trees or outside of the tree drip line, whichever is greater, to prevent disturbance within the critical root zone of any tree.
   I.   Shall be located at least five feet (5') away from the widest part of an alley or drive approach, including any flare associated with the approach.
   J.   Shall not be installed between the perpendicular extension of the primary street-facing wall plane of any single or two-family residence and the street.
   K.   When located adjacent to a commercial establishment, such as a shop or restaurant, care should be taken to locate the pole such that it does not negatively impact the business.
      1.   Shall not be located in-front of store front windows, primary walkways, primary entrances or exits, or in such a way that it would impede a delivery to the building.
      2.   Should be located between properties as much as possible.
