Small Cell facilities are low-powered antennas that provide cellular and data coverage to smaller geographic areas, supplementing the larger cellular network and improving service for wireless customers.
DOTI is responsible for issuing permits for any utility equipment placed in the right of way and setting standards for physical appearance and safety.
Applicants for small cell infrastructure in Denver must obtain a permit, must meet the requirements set forth in the design guidelines and consider the aesthetics of the existing streetlights and neighborhoods adjacent to proposed small cell locations.
