Umm, the BIG problem is that Dade County has a 140 MPH windspeed
regulation and it's not easy finding a tower that'll handle that.
Besides the above, the other BIG issue is CC&R's on your house and
development. What do your say about outside antennas?
There's just about no way to "minimize the interaction" with your local
building department. Get a copy of their codes and start there. I'm really
surprised that they were so nonchalant about your proposed antenna structures.
