The Zoning and Planning Committee voted unanimously on March 14th to change the Demolition Delay Ordinance to restart the demolition delay time period with transfer of ownership.
Specifically this change is worded as follows:
- To amend Section 22‐50 to require that in the event there is a transfer of legal or beneficial ownership of a preferably preserved property during the demolition delay period, the full demolition delay period will restart from the date of the transfer of ownership.
- To amend Section 22‐50 to require that in the event a transfer of legal or beneficial ownership of a preferably preserved property occurs after the expiration of a demolition delay period but prior to the issuance of a demolition permit, no demolition permit shall issue until the new owner complies with the procedures of Section 22‐50(c)5.
This amendment is awaiting a vote from the City Council.
