ORDINANCE NO. BL2012-88
An ordinance defining conditions for hardships for preservation permits reviewed by the Metropolitan Government’s Historic Zoning Commission (Proposal No. 2012Z-002TX-002).
WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Code of Laws does not define what grounds may be considered by Metro’s Historic Zoning Commission for applications for preservation permits; and,
WHEREAS, the best interest of historic preservation is to restrict the use of self-imposed hardships to qualify for preservation permits.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1: The Metropolitan Code of Laws 17.40.420(D) is hereby revised by adding subsection (8). This chapter will read as follows:
D. Determination of Economic Hardship.
8. Hardship Not Self-Imposed. The alleged difficulty or hardship has not been created by the previous actions or inactions of any person having an interest in the property after the effective date of the ordinance codified in this title.
Section 2: This ordinance shall take effect from and after its final passage, the welfare of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
