Section 175-95 MAINTENANCE, PUBLIC SAFETY AND PERMITTED USES.
A. Nothing in this Article shall allow the BAR to prevent the routine maintenance or repair of any exterior elements of any building or structure so long as there is no change in form or materials; nor shall anything in this Article be construed to prevent the construction, reconstruction, alteration or demolition of any exterior elements that the authorized municipal officers shall certify as required by public safety.
B. Nothing in this Article shall be construed to prevent any use of any land, building or structure permitted by the regulations prescribed in this Chapter for the district in which such land, building or structure is otherwise located. Due to peculiar conditions of design and construction in historic neighborhoods where buildings and structures are often built close to the lot lines, it is in the public interest to retain a neighborhood's historic appearance by granting variances to normal yard requirements, where appropriate and where it is deemed that such a variance will not adversely affect neighboring properties. The BAR may recommend to the Board of Zoning Appeals that such variance to standard yard requirements be made.
