Municipalities champion access to modern telecommunications services as a key to local and national prosperity. But working with private carriers presents complex challenges when it comes to managing rights-of-way while keeping residents safe and taxpayers protected. To support your local efforts, FCM produced the second edition of FCM’s Telecommunications and rights-of-way: A handbook for municipalities.

Within your municipality, we encourage you to share this tool with your engineers, technical experts and lawyers—especially those working in the areas of rights-of-way, utilities, land or transportation.

For an accessible version of this document, please contact us.
