The Buffalo News - - LOCAL NEWS - – Jane Kwiatkowski Radlich

A pub­lic hear­ing has been set fro 7:15 p.m. April 15 in Lan­caster Town Hall, 21 Cen­tral Ave., to dis­cuss the in­stal­la­tion of small-cell wire de­vices that will en­able res­i­dents to ac­cess 5G in­ter­net ser­vice.

The mini-towers, no larger than a pizza box, would be placed on street­lights, build­ings and ex­ist­ing util­ity poles, said Matt Fis­chione, su­per­vis­ing code en­force­ment of­fi­cer. In ad­di­tion, con­ceal­ment tech­niques will blend the in­stal­la­tion into the sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“The [amended] zon­ing code will al­low the place­ment of these de­vices to ser­vice the 5G net­work, am­pli­fy­ing the sig­nals to pro­vide faster con­nec­tion times through­out the town,” said Fis­chione.

Clarence adopted a law to reg­u­late the place­ment of the smaller de­vices in April 2018.
