163.07 DESIGN GUIDELINES.
(a) The Director of Planning shall promulgate detailed Design Guidelines with objective, technically feasible criteria applied in a non-discriminatory manner that reasonably match the aesthetics and character of the immediate area, and the historic designation or eligibility of the entire City, regarding all of the following, which the City shall consider in reviewing an application:
(1) The location of any ground-mounted small cell facilities;
(2) The location of a small cell facility on a wireless support structure;
(3) The appearance and concealment of small cell facilities, including those relating to materials used for arranging, screening, and landscaping; and
(4) The design and appearance of a wireless support structure.
(b) The Design Guidelines shall provide administrative and procedural guidance to applicants, such as a list of minimum application requirements.
(c) The provisions in this Section shall not limit or prohibit the Director of Planning's discretion to promulgate and make publicly available other information, materials, or requirements in addition to, and separate from, the Design Guidelines so long as the information, materials, or requirements do not conflict with state or federal law.
(d) The Director of Planning shall have authority to update or supplement the Small Cell Design Guidelines to address relevant changes in law, technology, or administrative processes. In the event of any conflict between the Small Cell Design Guidelines and the standards articulated in this Chapter, the language of this Chapter takes precedence over the language of the Design Guidelines.
