CHAPTER 12A. HISTORICAL LANDMARKS AND DISTRICTS.*
Article III. Designation of Historical Landmarks, Historical Districts and Historical Resources.
Sec. 12A-3-3. Appeal.
Any person dissatisfied with any action of the historical preservation
commission on an historical district or landmark designation, or designation as
a historical resource, may appeal the decision to the city council, at any time
within ten days after the rendition of the decision by the historical
preservation commission (unless additional time is granted by the commission).
No conflict of interest shall exist solely by reason of the filing of an appeal
by the city council, an individual city council member, or the city manager. The
appeal is taken by filing a notice of appeal with the secretary. Upon filing of
the notice of appeal and, except where an appeal is taken by the city council, a
city council member, or the city manager, payment of a filing fee, the secretary
must, within ten days, transmit to the city clerk all exhibits, notices,
affidavits, orders, and other papers and documents on file together with the
finding of the historical preservation commission.
(1) The city council
shall hold a hearing upon said appeal after giving written notice to applicant
and by causing a notice thereof to be published at least once in a newspaper of
general circulation within the city at least ten days prior to said hearing by
the city council.
(2) No official action, such as the issuance of a building
permit, license or other type of permit, shall be taken while an appeal or
proceedings for designation are pending. (Ord. No. 1004, § 2 (part); Ord.
No. 1261, § 2 (part); Ord. No. 1310 § 3 (part).)
