Communications Tower Policy

Yellowhead County has identified that rural communications (including broadband, mobility, and public safety) is a community enabler for economic prosperity as well as an instrument to assist in the health, safety and emergency management of its residents, industry and visitors. 

We're expanding upon its utility communications network that supports broadband, mobility and public safety communications and requires all applicants to make every effort to collocate on Yellowhead County owned utility towers. In situations where Yellowhead County does not have a tower and private towers are required, the applicant must utilize best efforts to provide tower space for Yellowhead County public safety equipment and collocation opportunities to other potential wireless providers.

See the attached Policy for details on the use and development of communications towers within Yellowhead County. Policy No.6100.04

Please contact the Yellowhead County Planning Department with any questions.
