Portland’s Broadband Strategic Plan recognizes broadband networks as fundamental infrastructure to the future of Portland’s citizens and businesses.
The Office for Community Technology (OCT) administers and reviews requests for wireless carrier sites located within the public right-of-way (ROW), e.g., attachments on utility poles located near the road or sidewalk. ROW permits are administrative permits in public streets. ROW siting and administrative permits are not governed by the zoning code.
Carriers are required to follow a pre-application notification process for new sites proposed in certain residential areas.
