Interested parties should communicate their wish to enter into an agreement to use the ROW by sending a letter to the Director of Telecommunications, Utilities and Franchises and include all relevant information about their plans, including type of service planned, proposed route, etc. All such agreements must be approved by the Common Council.


Companies who wish to erect telecommunications towers in the City of Buffalo may submit an application to the Permits Office. They will then be informed whether that particular siting requires any additional approvals (i.e. Planning Board, Preservation Board, etc.) or simply requires the approval of the Permits Office.
