Item # D.
Mike Standish, Town Clerk's Office
Resolution No. (R)16-03, amending the Right-of-Way License Agreement between the Town of Oro Valley and Zayo Group, LLC to allow telecommunication facilities within the Town's rights-of-way
Staff recommends approval.
The Zayo Group is a provider of bandwidth infrastructure services, and is requesting permission to expand its network within Oro Valley's jurisdiction. Its plan includes pulling fiber optics through existing CenturyLink ducts, and adding short runs of new ductwork as necessary for continuity. Zayo has contracted with CenturyLink in the use of the ducts.
Per Town Code 7-4-1 (Construction in Town right-of-ways), a right-of-way permit is required for the proposed work. However, due to the nature of the work, dark fiber, a license agreement would be required before a right-of-way permit can be issued. Attachment “Exhibit A” shows various locations installation will be placed throughout the Town.
BACKGROUND OR DETAILED INFORMATION:
The Zayo Group applied for a right-of-way permit to install telecommunication facilities within the Town’s public right-of-ways. The proposed work consists of pulling fiber optics through existing conduits owned by CenturyLink and located within and along the edge of the Town’s right-of-ways, and installing new conduits at various locations for continuity with existing conduits. The majority of the work is outside of the roadway pavement sections except for two locations where they will bore underneath to avoid cutting the pavement.
DIS engineering staff has reviewed the documents outlining the proposed work and has no objections with respect to the locations in the right-of-way. If approved, the license agreement sets forth the conditions to install telecommunication facilities within the Town’s rights-of-way.
In addition, a Conditional Use Permit will be required for any aerial installation over 600' in length, as per the Town Zoning Code.
There will be no fiscal impact to the Town; however, the Zayo Group, if they meet certain criteria, will pay $0.22 per lineal foot annually per the license agreement. This equates to an annual revenue of approximately $8,000 should the conditions ever occur.
I MOVE to (approve / deny) Resolution No. (R)16-03, amending the Right-of-Way License Agreement between the Town of Oro Valley and Zayo Group, LLC to allow telecommunication facilities within the Town’s rights-of-way.
