Every small wireless facility installation shall comply with the following standards:
(a) General Stealth, Concealment and Design Standards: Installations shall comply with any stealth, concealment, design and aesthetic standards applicable to utility installations in the public right-of-way, as set forth in Chapter 1030 (Construction of Utility Facilities in the Rights-of-Way) of this code, as well as any written design standards that are generally applicable for decorative utility poles, or reasonable stealth, concealment, design and aesthetic requirements that are otherwise identified by the Village in an ordinance, written policy adopted by the Village Council, in the Village's comprehensive plan, or in a written design plan that applies to other occupiers of the rights-of-way, including on a historic landmark or in a historic district.
(b) Historic Districts and Landmarks: For areas designated as historic districts, or on buildings or structures designated as either national historic landmarks or as landmarks pursuant to Chapter 1490 of this code, in addition to the stealth, concealment and design requirements referenced above, the following additional restrictions/conditions apply to the installation of small wireless facilities:
(1) Small wireless facilities shall be comprised of materials that are consistent with the surrounding elements so as to blend architecturally with any buildings or structures designated as historic landmarks or located within a designated historic district, and shall be designed to blend with the surrounding historical landmarks and/or district in design and color.
(2) Small wireless facilities shall not be mounted upon designated historic landmarks.
(1) Any stealth, concealment and design standards, including restrictions on a specific category of utility poles, may not have the effect of prohibiting any provider's technology. Such stealth, concealment and design measures shall not be considered a part of the small wireless facility for purposes of the size restrictions of a small wireless facility.
(2) This subsection shall not be construed to limit the Village's enforcement of historic preservation in conformance with the requirements adopted pursuant to the Illinois State Agency Historic Resources Preservation Act or the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, 54 U.S.C. Section 300101 et seq., and the regulations adopted to implement those laws.
