RESOLUTION EXPRESSING INTENT TO MODIFY THE NORTH SHORE DEVELOPMENT MORATORIUM TO ALLOW LIMITED CONSTRUCTION OF SINGLE FAMILY DWELLINGS AND REQUESTING ADMINISTRATIVE COORDINATION WITH RESPECT TO A BUILDING PERMIT ISSUED.
WHEREAS, by the passage of this resolution and the filing of Ordinance No. 00-018-O, the Duluth City Council hereby expresses its intent to modify the North Shore development moratorium contained in Ordinance No. 9439 to permit limited construction of single family residences under the terms and conditions set forth in Ordinance No. 00-018-O; and
WHEREAS, a building permit was inadvertently issued to Richard and Karen Sather for the construction of a single family residence within the moratorium area; and
WHEREAS, it appears that the residence the Sathers seek to construct will meet the conditions for the single family dwelling exception set forth in Ordinance No. 00-018-O; and
WHEREAS, the Sathers have expended time and money in reliance on the building permit they inadvertently received from the city;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Duluth City Council requests that the Duluth building official not seek to cancel or revoke the building permit issued to Richard and Karen Sather with the understanding that the city council proposes to pass Ordinance No. 00-018-O;
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that
the building official is requested to allow the Sathers to continue with
their project during the time Ordinance No. 00-018-O is being enacted and
on file before taking effect.
