Where relief is sought from the provisions of this chapter, application shall be made in the form of a letter explaining the relief sought and the reasons therefor, accompanied by a scaled site plan and a $100.00 fee. The complete application shall be filed with the Director of Community and Economic Development. Within 15 working days from the date of receipt of a complete application, the Director of Community and Economic Development shall issue a written decision to approve, approve with modifications, or deny the request for relief. Any decision of the Director of Community and Economic Development may be appealed to the City Council if written notice of appeal, which shall include all and exclusive reasons for said appeal, is filed with the Director of Community and Economic Development within 10 working days from the date of the decision. In the event a written decision is not issued by the Director of Community and Economic Development within the required time period, the application for relief shall automatically constitute a qualified and properly filed notice of appeal and shall be considered by the City Council in accordance with this section. The City Council, within 30 calendar days from the date of filing of the appeal, shall consider the appeal at a regular meeting thereof, but such consideration shall be limited to the reasons included in the written notice of appeal and shall include the written decision of the Director of Community and Economic Development and the reasons therefor. The City Council may affirm, modify or reverse the decision of the Director of Community and Economic Development. [Ord. 3515 § 1, 2001; Code 1970 § 25.58.140.]
