In todays connected world, broadband and wireless communications are a necessity. Municipalities, non-traditional private providers and cooperatives, in some unserved and under-served areas, are exploring alternative ways to sponsor and fund broadband projects. In an area that is often uncharted territory to governmental entities, we help chart a path for success.

THE PROJECT

Assist the Delaware County Ohio officials with zoning and permitting matters including redrafting current regulations, with the goal to maximize “dig-once” and "neutral hosting solutions" to serve multiple carriers from any one macro or micro tower, for the community benefits of both public safety and aesthetic concerns as well as facilitating private sector deployment of 5G technology. This was inclusive of managing, marketing and constructing of new assets.
