Boston looks to curb clutter of satellite dishes
Ordinance would ban installations facing Hub streets
On Thursday, a Boston City Council committee finalized wording on an ordinance that seeks to clean satellite dish clutter. The proposal, supported by Mayor Thomas M. Menino, would require the removal of all out-of-use satellite dishes. It would also ban new installations from facades and other walls that face the street, unless an installer can prove there is no other place way to get a signal. Dishes would have to be placed on roofs, in the rear, or on the sides of buildings.
