Small Wireless Facilities

The Small Wireless Facilities Deployment Act, 50 ILCS 840/1 which was signed into law on April 12, 2018 as Public Act 100-0585, provides the regulations and process for permitting and deploying small wireless facilities within rights-of-way and on private property throughout Illinois (excluding Chicago).  Small wireless facilities, also known as "small cell", are most often attached to utility or other poles.  The Act imposes certain requirements on municipalities, including La Grange.

The Village has adopted design standards for small wireless facilities.
