**UPDATE- In reaching out to the City to verify meeting times- we were read a statement from the City of Fishers with regards to 5G-
This program is being placed on hold and all current permits denied. Fishers is going to review their permitting process with regards to 5G. See below for Fishers statement on the Public Works and Safety Board page:
The City is reviewing ways to strengthen its 5G process for all parties involved, therefore the City will not bring 5G permits forward until the refined process is articulated to all stakeholders. Future hearing dates/times will be updated on this site.
***Update- The City of Fishers--- This information is from the City of Fishers website:
Verizon recently informed the City of their intent to re-initiate the permitting process for their 5G technology.
Verizon has cited its desire to concentrate on its fiber build-out as the primary reason for halting its pursuit of residential permits in Fishers. Neighborhoods that have begun the process of meeting or discussing 5G tower placements with the City, can expect:
All tabled or pending applications and permits will be re-submitted for processing.
If your neighborhood was scheduled at a past Board of Works meeting, you will be notified again when your location is prepared for a public vote.
The City intends to restart the permit process from the beginning, meaning you will have another opportunity to review placements and discuss locations with Verizon Wireless and the City of Fishers.
5G implementation continues with all previously approved residential permits. Additionally, Verizon has the authority to continue with the construction of 5G towers located in the public right of way.
If you have questions, please email or contact Makenzie Poole at 317-595-3151.
