The move, approved the City Council, would require removal of all obsolete dishes. It would also ban new installations from facades and other walls facing the street, unless an installer can prove there is no other place to get a signal. Dishes would have to be placed on roofs, in the rear or on the sides of buildings.
Cities are rebelling against unsightly clusters of satellite dishes. Some are passing laws banning satellite dishes from the fronts of homes, unless a signal can’t be obtained another way.
