Governor Cuomo’s executive budget has proposed a change to General Municipal Law to allow “Micro Wireless Facilities” to be placed on any utility, signal or directional pole in a community and exempt this placement from any local zoning control whatsoever.  These boxes (24”x15”x12”) need fairly short distances between them to be effective so their visual impact may be significant.  Home rule and local resident control of their own zoning regulations has been enshrined in NYS since its inception.  The issue is clearly stated in an article at  I urge you to write to Governor Cuomo, Senator Bonacic and Assemblyman Brabenec asking them to oppose the State of New York’s latest effort to destroy local municipalities’ right to control their communities’ development.
