STATEMENT BY THE MAYOR-PRESIDENT

BATON ROUGE, LA — May 30, 2019 — Due to the concern expressed by residents regarding AT&T’s small cell towers, I have requested that AT&T temporarily suspend construction of the towers. AT&T is in the process of developing a communications process to make property owners aware of investment plans in the community that may involve the public right-of-way adjacent to their properties. In an effort to improve connectivity in Baton Rouge, AT&T has complied with the site approvals process established by the adopted City-Parish ordinance and has worked with property owners who have reached out with their specific concerns.


AT&T has no plans for additional residential locations at this time and will resume deployment efforts once they have an opportunity to answer additional questions from the community. The Federation of Civic Associations is holding a special meeting this evening to discuss small cell towers and options available to address the issues of aesthetics, property values, and the health, safety, and welfare of residents.
