Sec. 12A-4-9. Appeal.

Any person dissatisfied with any action of the historical preservation commission on a request for building or demolition permit 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). The appeal is taken by filing a notice of appeal with the secretary. Upon filing of the notice of appeal and 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; Ord. No. 1310 § 4 (part).)
