FCC makes public new communication tower order

The Federal Communications Commission, Oct. 5, released the Report and Order adopting measures to streamline and tailor the review process for communications towers and other Commission-licensed facilities under the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

With the Report and Order, the commission seeks to reduce burdens on those involved in the review process for new communications towers while protecting historic properties, including those with religious or cultural significance to federally recognized Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian Organizations.

As reported in the Sept. 21 edition of RF Update, one of the key points of the newly adopted Nationwide Programmatic Agreement is a description of standards to be used to identify historic properties that may be affected by an undertaking and to assess effects on those properties.

For more details, see "FCC moves forward on agreement to ease burden of siting towers" in the Sept. 21 edition of RF Update.
