Sec. 12A-7-3. Determination of historic potential.

(a) Upon receipt of any application for a permit to demolish a building, structure, or other feature, the building inspection division shall forward the application to the planning division of the community development department. The planning division shall determine whether the building, structure, or other feature is a designated historical landmark or resource and, if not, whether the building, structure, or other feature should be considered for such designation. Such determination shall be completed within ten working days of receiving an application for a demolition permit from the building inspection division.
(b) If the building, structure or other feature is a designated historical landmark or historical resource, an application shall be prepared and referred to the historical preservation commission pursuant to Section 12A-4-2 herein.
(c) If the building, structure or other feature has potential historic significance, in the opinion of the planning division director, but is not currently designated as a historical landmark or historical resource, an application for a determination shall be prepared and referred to the historical preservation commission pursuant to Section 12A-3-2 herein.
(d) If the planning division determines that the building, structure, or feature is not designated as a historical landmark or historical resource, and that it should not be considered for such designation, it shall so inform the building inspection division. The building inspection division may then issue the demolition permit. (Ord. No. 1229; § 2 (part); Ord. No. 1310 § 6 (part).)
