- 5G technology – & Mrs. Beck. Texter Mountain Rd. in attendance to discuss additional information regarding health risks to community and sample ordinances other communities have adopted which limit location of 5G facilities. Board agrees that there is a health risk, and not enough study of health/environmental hazards this technology may create has been completed to date.
- Board recommends Board of Supervisors adopt a resolution (similar to that attached) to encourage US Congress to commission FCC for due diligence and undertake safety and environmental and health hazard review prior to 5G deployment. Also, to support local government efforts to protect safety and health of citizens by limiting placement, location of 5G Facilities.
- Board reviewing several local area ordinances that have addressed 5G Technology, and will provide recommendations for revisions to our ordinance accordingly when research completed.
- Short Term Rentals – continued discussion on definition, conditions and zones allowed. Also discussed other terms to be defined. Suggested definitions forthcoming.
Correspondence: reviewed, and the zoning violation notice for fence installed that impedes vision @ street intersection led to discussion on all obstructions; fences, hedges, etc. within Right of way and within clear sight triangles at intersections, this is a safety issue. Clear sight triangles are specified in Lebanon County SALDO, Sect. 5.1-.c.f (STREETS) as: 75’ from centerline intersection, nothing higher than 30” allowed
Board recommends clear sight triangles be added to our ordinance or reference to Penn Dot standards for clear sight distance.
