State and Federal law regulating telecommunications infrastructure, including small cell 5G antennas, remains strongly on the telecommunication industry’s side. Both the Illinois Small Wireless Facility Deployment Act, federal law and FCC Declaratory Rulings and Orders and other regulations are designed to allow telecommunications industry rollout of 5G over the next two years with minimal ability on the part of local governments to legally say no so long as aesthetic standards are adhered to and permitting processes are followed. Please refer to the memo below for additional details.

One of the Village's 2018 Strategic Planning Goals was to assess and improve downtown traffic circulation for both vehicles and pedestrians. The Village has also conducted a downtown parking study to assess existing public parking options, identify deficiencies and provide options for improvement.
These studies are based upon data collected by third party consultants that specialize in traffic and parking analysis. They use the data collected in the field, apply industry standard modeling and best practices to create reports.There was a Committee of the Whole on the discussion of these studies on November 13, 2018, and additional action taken at the January 15, 2019 Village Board meeting to implement parts of the studies. View the reports, studies, and a list of active projects related to improving downtown traffic and pedestrian accessibility on the project page.
