B. Site location and development shall preserve the preexisting character of the surrounding buildings and land uses and the zone district to the extent consistent with the functions of the communications equipment. Wireless communication towers shall be integrated through the location and design to blend in with the existing characteristics of the site to the extent practical.

3. Not have obstructing lighting systems unless an aeronautical study has been completed, stating the lights are needed.
