BATH — Proposed ordinance language regulating wireless communications facilities may go to the City Council in November, City Planner Jim Upham said Wednesday.

The Planning Board discussed the language Tuesday. Upham said he plans to work further on the document, and the board may vote next month to recommend the ordinance to the City Council.

The council must vote twice on the ordinance change, possibly in November and December.

Among discussion items Tuesday were how high to allow cell towers to rise over the tops of nearby trees and setbacks from property lines. The board also recommended that towers not be allowed in Bath’s high-density residential zone, nor in the city’s Commercial 4 zone, which runs along Route 1.
