Disperse Symbology Markers At All Scales

I have an ArcGIS Online map that displays bond funded school building improvements. There are custom icons for each category. I want users to be able to see the different icons for each type of project for each site, surrounding the site. Each one of these bond improvements is stored as a point that shares the lat/lon coordinates of the site. When authoring the map in Pro, I used the Disperse Markerstool to make the icons spread out around the site for easier viewing. The problem with this is that the dispersion is fixed at a certain distance from the point at a certain map reference scale. I published to AGOL, but the points are essentially stacked on top of each other until the user zooms all the way in. I want them to remain the roughly same distance from the site point at all zoom levels. Is there a better way to accomplish what I'm trying to do in Pro, AGOL, or JavaScript?

You might want to consider something like a DictionaryRenderer with CIMSymbol, here is an example:
