Zoning Board of Appeals (Appeals Procedure)
Procedures relative to appeals.
A. Who may appeal. An appeal to the Zoning Board of Appeals for administrative review or variance may be taken by any person, firm or corporation aggrieved or by any governmental officer, department, board or bureau affected by any decision of the Code Enforcement Officer, based in whole or in part upon the provisions of this chapter. Such an appeal shall be taken by filing with the Zoning Board of Appeals a notice of appeal, specifying the grounds thereof. The Code Enforcement Officer shall forthwith transmit to the Zoning Board of Appeals all papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken.
B. Time of appeal. Said notice of appeal shall be filed within 60 days from the date upon which the notice of refusal of a building permit or refusal of a certificate of occupancy is mailed by the Code Enforcement Officer, and failure to file notice of appeal within 60 days shall constitute a waiver of the right of appeal.
C. Stay of proceedings. An appeal stays all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from, unless the Code Enforcement Officer from whom the appeal is taken certifies to the Zoning Board of Appeals, after the notice of appeal shall have been filed with him, that by reason of facts stated in the certificate a stay would, in his opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property, in which case proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order, which may be granted by the Zoning Board of Appeals or by a court of record, on application, a notice to the Code Enforcement Officer, and on due cause shown.
