No sooner than thirty (30) days from the date of adoption of this chapter, the city shall examine whether equal access to the capability for fiber optic facility attachments to utility poles or other facilities of other city-franchised entities exists within the city. In the event that the city determines, in its sole discretion, that equal access to pole or other utility facility attachments does not exist at such time, the city shall forthwith impose a permit moratorium upon the issuance of all new street excavation, right-of-way excavation, or other construction or installation permits for all fiberoptic installations within the city relating to such facilities, including permits for modification of existing facilities. Such moratorium shall also have the effect of cancelling any existing permit for any fiber optic licensee which allows attachment to any such pole or other utility facility attachments of other city-franchised entities within the city for the duration of such moratorium. The moratorium imposed pursuant to this section shall remain in effect until the city determines, in its sole discretion, that equal access exists within the city for pole or other utility facility attachments for fiber optic communications facilities.
