A. 
Legislative intent. The Board of Trustees of the Village of Munsey Park determines that it is in the best interest of its residents to establish regulations and standards for the siting and installation of all WTSF equipment, including towers, monopoles, pole-mounted and building-attached equipment and other related devices and equipment. These regulations and standards are adopted in order to promote the safety and welfare of the residents of the Village of Munsey Park to the extent reasonably permitted under federal and state laws and rules and regulations. This section will ensure that all wireless telecommunication WTSF's and equipment be sited, designed, built and utilized in accordance with sound use planning that will preserve and protect the aesthetic qualities of the Village and promote and protect the safety and welfare of its residents.
B. 
Purpose. The purpose of this section is to regulate, to the fullest extent reasonably permitted by law, the siting, location, construction and maintenance of WTSF's in the Village in order to:
(1) 
Promote the safety and welfare of the residents of the Village and surrounding communities.
(2) 
Minimize the adverse visual effects of WTSF's and protect the natural features, aesthetics and residential character of the Village by careful siting, design, buffering and screening of WTSF's.
(3) 
Limit the total number of WTSF's to be constructed in the Village to the minimum number of WTSF's necessary to provide adequate coverage to the Village.
(4) 
Maximize the use of any proposed site by encouraging collocation and multiple use of WTSF's to the extent reasonably permissible.
(5) 
Encourage the siting of wireless telecommunications services facilities (WTSF's) on existing or other planned or approved WTSF's, and/or the use of alternative technologies, which eliminate the need for new or additional WTSF's in the Village of Munsey Park.
(6) 
Where the siting of a WTSF within the Village is proven to be necessary, to limit new WTSF's to existing nonresidentially used buildings on property with frontage on a state or county road and zoned for commercial uses, and to prohibit WTSF's on residentially zoned lands which are vacant or contain a residence.
C. 
Applicability and required findings. The following conditional use permit standards and requirements shall apply to all WTSF's. No conditional use permit approval shall be granted unless the Board of Trustees makes the findings in writing that the application fulfills all of the purposes and meets all of the requirements of this section.
D. 
Use. Except as provided hereinafter, no WTSF shall be located, constructed or maintained on any lot, building, structure or land area in the Village of Munsey Park, except in conformity with the requirements of this section and all other applicable regulations.
E. 
Location and access. WTSF's are expressly prohibited on residentially zoned lands which are vacant or contain a residence. WTSF's shall be located in accordance with the following priorities. The applicant shall evaluate and demonstrate the infeasibility of a higher priority location before considering the next lower priority:
(1) 
Existing or other planned or approved WTSF's or buildings within a 1.5 mile radius of the proposed site which eliminate the need for new or additional WTSF's in the Village of Munsey Park.
(2) 
The use of alternative technologies which eliminate the need for new or additional WTSF's in the Village of Munsey Park.
(3) 
Siting WTSF's on property with frontage on a state or county road which is zoned for commercial uses.
(4) 
Siting on existing nonresidentially used property with frontage on a state or county road.
(5) 
Sites not meeting the foregoing criteria shall only be considered by the Board of Trustees after the applicant demonstrates that any site meeting the foregoing criteria is not available and that the alternate site protects and preserves the aesthetic qualities, residential characteristics of the Village of Munsey Park, the property values of the community, and the safety and welfare of its citizens, to the maximum extent practicable.
F. 
Collocation requirements.
(1) 
A proposal for a WTSF shall not be approved unless the Board of Trustees finds that the antenna planned for the proposed WTSF cannot be accommodated on an existing or approved WTSF or building within a 1.5 mile search radius of the proposed WTSF due to one or more of the following reasons:
(a) 
The antenna would exceed the structural capacity of the existing or approved WTSF or building, as certified by a licensed professional engineer, and the existing or approved WTSF cannot be reinforced, modified, or replaced to accommodate the planned or equivalent antenna at a reasonable cost.
(b) 
The antenna would cause interference materially impacting the function of other existing or approved antenna at the WTSF or building as certified by a qualified professional or other recognized authority and the interference cannot be prevented at a reasonable cost.
(c) 
Existing or approved WTSF's and buildings within the 1.5 mile search radius cannot accommodate the antenna at a height necessary to function reasonably or to provide adequate coverage to the intended service area as certified by a qualified professional or other recognized authority.
(d) 
Other reasons that make it infeasible to locate the antenna upon an existing or approved WTSF or building.
(2) 
All WTSF's shall be designed, structurally, electrically, and in all respects, to accommodate both the applicant's antennas and base equipment and comparable antennas and base equipment for at least four additional licensed carriers. WTSF's must be designed to allow for future rearrangement of antennas upon the WTSF and to accept antennas mounted at varying heights. The Village Board of Trustees may reduce the number of licensed carriers required to be accommodated for just cause and consistent with the purposes of this section and this chapter.
(3) 
The applicant shall submit to the Board a letter of intent committing the applicant, and its successors in interest, to negotiate in good faith for shared use of the proposed WTSF by other WTS providers in the future. The issuance of any permit for a WTSF shall commit the new WTSF owner and its successors in interest to:
(a) 
Respond in a timely comprehensive manner to a request for information from a potential shared-use applicant.
(b) 
Negotiate in good faith concerning future requests for shared use of the WTSF by other WTS providers.
(c) 
Allow shared use of the new WTSF if another WTS provider agrees in writing to pay charges.
(d) 
Relocate antennas on the WTSF as necessary to accommodate collocation of additional licensed service providers, to provide adequate coverage, or to minimize the height or other avoidable impacts of the WTSF.
(4) 
In order to keep neighboring municipalities informed, and to facilitate the possibility of directing that an existing tall structure or existing WTSF in a neighboring municipality be considered for shared use, an applicant shall submit to the Board of Trustees an affidavit that it has sent by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, at least 15 days prior to the public hearing a notification to all of the Clerks of each municipality, and the secretaries of each district or commission, such as the fire departments and the water authorities, within two miles of the proposed location of the WTSF. Such notification shall include the exact location of the proposed WTSF, and a general description of the project, including but not limited to the height of the WTSF and its capacity for future shared use.
(a) 
In addition to all other referral requirements for conditional use permit applications pursuant to § 239 of the General Municipal Law and as set forth in the Zoning Law, notification shall be made to all municipalities of all applications involving WTSF's. The Village shall request reciprocal referral of all applications in the adjacent municipality involving WTSF's.
G. 
Setbacks.
(1) 
It shall be a priority of the Village to maximize the separation between WTSF's and residences and residential properties.
