Dear Concerned Oakland Citizens,
Wednesday, June 19th at 6:00 pm at the Planning Commission meeting will be one of our last chances to voice our input about the design standard guidelines for Small Wireless Facilities (SWF) in the Public Right of Way (PROW).
There will be NO public notification, discretionary approval (Planning Commission) or appeal rights on many of the telecom applications we have seen come before the Planning Commission over the last year once these guidelines are in place. "Finally, the order essentially requires the City to grant SWF within the PROW unless the facilities fail to meet pre-existing, objective, design standards."
We need you at the Planning Commission to have our voices be heard. We will have prepared speeches for you to say at the Director's Report agenda item time to cover all the points we wish to make into the making of these final guidelines. We are still working on finalizing all of the points, and will then break them up into 2 minute segments.
We now have a strong understanding of the goal at hand especially with the Director's Report that was put out just recently about these guidelines. It also contained a purpose and background statement which was very helpful to us in focusing our direction.

This document explains many pieces of the pie that we were missing in our understanding of the permitting process and the Planning Commission's role. We, the public, won't be involved in the process at all after the guidelines are implemented.
Thanks so much and looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday. Come around 5:45pm in order to fill out a speaker card.
Location: City Hall, 1 Frank H Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA 94612. Enter from main Plaza and go to the top of the main stairs.
