The Commission shall consider the following:
(1) 
The historic or architectural value and significance of the resource and its relationship to the historic value of the surrounding area.
(2) 
The relationship of any architectural features of the resource to the rest of the resource and to the surrounding area.

The Commission shall not disapprove an application due to considerations not prescribed in Subsection C hereof.
E. 
If an application is for work that will adversely affect the exterior of a resource the Commission considers valuable to the City of Monroe, the State of Michigan or national interests, and the Commission determines that the alteration or loss of that resource will adversely affect the local, state and/or federal public purpose, the Commission shall attempt to establish, with the owner of the resource, an economically feasible plan for preservation of the resource.
F. 
Work within an historic district shall be permitted through the issuance of a notice to proceed by the Commission if any of the following conditions prevails and if the proposed work can be demonstrated by a finding of the Commission to be necessary to substantially improve or correct any of the following conditions:
(1) 
The resource constitutes a hazard to the safety of the public or to the structure's occupants.
(2) 
The resource is a deterrent to a major improvement program that will be of substantial benefit to the community, and the applicant proposing the work has obtained all necessary planning and zoning approvals, financing and environmental clearances.
(3) 
Retaining the resource will cause undue financial hardship to the owner when a governmental action, an act of God, or other events beyond the owner's control, created the hardship, and all feasible alternatives to eliminate the financial hardship, which may include offering the resource for sale at its fair market value or moving the resource to a vacant site within the historic district, have been attempted and exhausted by the owner.
(4) 
Retaining the resource is not in the interest of the majority of the community.
G. 
The business that the Commission may perform shall be conducted at a public meeting of the Commission held in compliance with the Open Meetings Act, Act 267 of the Public Acts of 1976, as amended, being MCLA §§ 15.261 to 15.275. Public notice of the time, date, and place of the meeting shall be given in the manner required by Act 267 of the Public Acts of 1976, as amended. A meeting agenda shall be part of the notice and shall include a listing of each permit application to be reviewed or considered by the Commission.
H. 
The Commission shall keep a record of its resolutions, proceedings and actions. A writing prepared by, owned by, used by, in the possession of, or retained by, the Commission in the performance of an official function shall be made available to the public in compliance with the Freedom of Information Act, Act 442 of the Public Acts of 1976, as amended, being MCLA §§ 15.231 to 15.246.
I. 
The Commission may delegate the issuance of certificates of appropriateness for specified minor classes of work, with the concurrence of City Council, to the Department of Building, Zoning and Environmental Compliance. The Commission shall provide to the Building Department specific written standards for issuing certificates of appropriateness under this subsection. On at least a quarterly basis, the Commission shall review the certificates of appropriateness issued by the Department to determine whether or not the delegated responsibilities should be continued.
J. 
Upon a finding by the Commission that an historic resource within an historic district or a proposed historic district subject to its review and approval is threatened with demolition by neglect, the Commission may do either of the following:
(1) 
The Commission may require the owner of the resource to repair all conditions contributing to demolition by neglect.
(2) 
If the owner does not make repairs within a reasonable time, the Commission or its agents may enter the property and make such repairs as are necessary to prevent demolition by neglect. The costs of the work shall be charged to the owner and may be levied by the local unit as a special assessment against the property. The Commission or its agents may enter the property for purposes of this section upon obtaining an order from the Circuit Court.
K. 
When work has been done upon a resource without a permit, and the Commission finds that the work does not qualify for a certificate of appropriateness, the Commission may require an owner to restore the resource to the condition the resource was in before the inappropriate work or to modify the work so that it qualifies for a certificate of appropriateness. If the owner does not comply with the restoration or modification requirement within a reasonable time, the Commission may seek an order from the Circuit Court to require the owner to restore the resource to its former condition or to modify the work so that it qualifies for a certificate of appropriateness. If the owner does not comply or cannot comply with the order of the court, the Commission or its agents may enter the property and conduct work necessary to restore the resource to its former condition or modify the work so that it qualifies for a certificate of appropriateness in accordance with the Court's order. The costs of the work shall be charged to the owner and may be levied by the local unit as a special assessment against the property. When acting pursuant to an order of the Circuit Court, the Commission or its agents may enter a property for purposes of this section.
A. 
The Commission shall file certificates of appropriateness, notices to proceed, and denials of applications for permits with the Department of Building, Zoning and Environmental Compliance. A permit shall not be issued by the Department unless and until the Commission has acted as prescribed by this chapter.
(1) 
If a permit application is denied by the Commission, the decision shall be binding on the Department or other authority. A denial shall be accompanied with a written explanation by the Commission of the reasons for denial and, if appropriate, a notice that an application may be resubmitted for Commission review when suggested changes have been made. The denial shall also include notification of the applicant's rights of appeal to the State Historic Preservation Review Board and to the Monroe County 38th Judicial Circuit Court.
(2) 
The failure of the Commission to act within 60 calendar days after the date a complete application is filed with the Commission, unless an extension is agreed upon in writing by the applicant and the Commission, shall be considered to constitute approval.
B. 
Local public officials and employees shall provide information and records to the Committee and the Commission and shall meet with those bodies upon request to assist with their activities.
The City Council may accept state or federal grants for historic preservation purposes, may participate in state and federal programs that benefit historic preservation, and may accept public or private gifts for historic preservation purposes. The City Council may make the Historic District Commission, a City department or other agency its duly appointed agent to accept and administer grants, gifts and program responsibilities.
If all efforts by the Historic District Commission to preserve a resource fail, or if it is determined by the City Council that public ownership is most suitable, the City Council, if considered to be in the public interest, may acquire the resource using public funds, public or private gifts, grants or proceeds from the issuance of revenue bonds. The acquisition shall be based upon the recommendation of the Commission. The Commission is responsible for maintaining publicly owned resources using its own funds, if not specifically designated for other purposes, or public funds committed for that use by the City Council. Upon recommendation of the Commission, the City Council may sell resources acquired under this section with protective easements included in the property transfer documents, if appropriate.
Nothing in this chapter shall be construed to prevent ordinary maintenance or repair of a resource within an historic district, or to prevent work on any resource under a permit issued by the Department of Building, Zoning and Environmental Compliance before this chapter was enacted.
A. 
The City Council may at any time establish by ordinance additional historic districts, including proposed districts previously considered and rejected, may modify boundaries of an existing historic district, or may eliminate an existing historic district. Before establishing, modifying or eliminating an historic district, the Historic District Study Committee, as established herein, shall, except as provided in Subsection B hereof, comply with the procedures set forth in § 383-4 and shall consider any previously written Committee reports pertinent to the proposed action.
B. 
If considering elimination of an historic district, the Committee shall follow the procedures set forth in § 383-4 for issuing a preliminary report, holding a public hearing, and issuing a final report, but with the intent of showing one or more of the following:
(1) 
The historic district has lost those physical characteristics that qualified it for establishment of the district.
(2) 
The historic district was not significant in the way previously defined.
(3) 
The historic district was established pursuant to defective procedures.
C. 
Upon receipt of substantial evidence showing the presence of historic, architectural, archaeological, engineering or cultural significance of a proposed historic district, the City Council may adopt a resolution requiring that all applications for permits within the proposed historic district be referred to the Commission as prescribed in §§ 383-8 and 383-9. The Commission shall review permit applications with the same powers that would apply if the proposed historic district were an established historic district. The review may continue in the proposed historic district for not more than one year, or until such time as the local unit approves or rejects the establishment of the historic district by ordinance, whichever occurs first.
D. 
If the City Council determines that pending work will cause irreparable harm to resources located within an established historic district or a proposed historic district, the City Council may, by resolution, declare an emergency moratorium of all such work for a period not to exceed six months. The City Council may extend the emergency moratorium for an additional period not to exceed six months upon finding that the threat of irreparable harm to resources is still present. Any pending permit application concerning a resource subject to an emergency moratorium may be summarily denied.
A. 
The Commission may investigate and recommend to the City Council those areas it deems valuable for designation as conservation districts.
B. 
The process for the establishment, modification or elimination of a conservation district shall follow the same procedure(s) set forth in this chapter for the establishment, modification or elimination of historic districts.
C. 
Upon designation of a conservation district by the City Council, the Commission will notify the property owners of the conservation district in writing and inform them of the advice and guidance available to them from the Commission with respect to new construction and remodeling.
D. 
To assure the continuation of this assistance in conservation districts, the Department of Building, Zoning and Environmental Compliance shall notify the Commission of all permit applications in conservation districts for construction of new buildings and for moving or demolition of a structure. The Commission shall then contact the owner(s) and offer any advice and guidance desired. The Commission shall have no authority to deny or delay the issuance of any such permit.
