A good information source for siting telecommunications towers can be found at the website of the Federal Communications Commission at http://wireless.fcc.gov/siting/.

The FCC’s preliminary application to construct or alter a telecommunications tower (FCC Form 854) is at www.fcc.gov/Forms/Form854/854.pdf.

Forms for notifying the FAA of a proposed tower construction or alteration (FAA Form 7460-1) are difficult to access via the Internet. Instead, prospective applicants should contact the FAA’s regional office at 1701 Columbia Avenue, College Park, GA 30337 or call (404) 305-5685.

Forms for registering telecommunications towers with the Tennessee comptroller of the treasury are at http://www.comptroller.tn.gov/OSAP/sapform.asp.
