Satellite Dish Clutter Targeted

April 12, 2018

Legislation to create a task force to study methods to prevent the overcrowding of satellite dishes on single-family and multifamily homes was approved today by the state House of Representatives.

This issue affects homes particularly in our state’s urban areas, where many single and multi-family homes are cluttered with satellite dishes. Many of these satellite dishes are no longer in use and there is no incentive or penalty to properly dispose of them.

Homes with multiple, often unused, satellite dished become an eyesore and damaging to the images of city neighborhoods.

To me this is what qualifies as urban pollution and the clutter is ruining the beauty of our neighborhoods and could be a determent to life improvements. If a policy is enacted, it could spur economic growth, ultimately improving property values in communities.
