A special permit for the preservation by adaptive re-use of an historic place accepted on the National Register of Historic Places may be requested for uses not otherwise permitted within the applicable district:

(1) A special permit granted under this section is personal to the applicant and shall permit only the applicant to exercise the adaptive re-use authority, and shall not be assigned, transferred, conveyed or passed to heirs or beneficiaries of the applicant’s estate; and

(2) Each applicant granted a special permit shall be required to substantially preserve the intrinsic qualities of the historic place which led to its acceptance on the National Register of Historic Places. Prior to issuance of any building permits, the City may consult with the Washington State Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation to ensure compliance with this requirement. [Ord. 3354 § 2, 1999; Code 1970 § 25.86.025.]
