The amendment requires the Connecticut Siting Council to incorporate certain processes into a state-wide plan for siting small cell antenna and distributed antenna systems by January 1, 2018.
As the Siting Council currently does not have expertise required for amending this plan, outside consultants may have to be hired at an estimated one-time cost of up to $100,000 in FY 18.
