No. Small cell facilities are allowed in the public right of way per federal and state laws, just like other utilities.
The City of Eugene has developed a permitting system to ensure that small cell facilities are placed in a way that minimizes their impacts within the areas that the City is allowed to regulate. All applications are evaluated per local telecommunications ordinances and administrative regulations.
