The imposition of interim uses shall be done by the introduction of a resolution sponsored by at least three council members. The resolution establishing interim uses may provide that no use, development, project or subdivision for which an application has not been previously filed shall be established or expanded, nor shall any application for a license, building permit, administrative waiver, review or approval of any application, including an application for any zoning approval, which concerns both the geographical area and subject matter of the interim ordinance filed after the introduction of the interim ordinance, be granted or further processed, pending a final decision on the adoption of the interim ordinance;
(b) Upon final adoption of an interim ordinance, the following restrictions shall apply:
(1) No permits, licenses or other approvals of any kind which concern both the geographical area and subject matter of the interim ordinance shall be processed or issued except in accordance with its terms;
(2) No use, development, project or subdivision which concerns both the geographical area and subject matter of the interim ordinance shall be established or expanded except in accordance with its terms;
(c) If the interim ordinance is not adopted, the resolution establishing interim uses shall be null and void and requests for permits and other necessary approvals shall be processed promptly in accordance with the procedures governing the request.
Section 2. That this ordinance shall take effect 30 days after its passage and publication.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This ordinance eliminates the requirement that three councilors sponsor the introduction of a resolution establishing interim uses.
