In what is being hailed as a significant victory for the cell tower industry, the U.S. Supreme Court has held that local governments must provide reasons when they deny applications to build cell towers.  This decision upholds the requirements of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which requires that if zoning applications for cell towers are denied, the reasons must be stated in writing and provided in a timely manner.  Read the full text of the decision in T-Mobile South v. City of Roswell, Georgia.
