(A) If the Director of Public Services denies terminal designation, route feasibility or revokes a previously approved terminal or route, he shall notify the applicant in writing. The applicant or terminal owner, within ten days following the date of receipt of the decision of the Director of Public Services, may appeal the decision to the City Council in writing. An appeal shall be made on a form pre-scribed by the Director of Public Services and shall be filed with the City Clerk upon payment of the appeal fee. The appeal shall state specifically wherein there was an error or abuse of discretion by the Director of Public Services or wherein its decision is not supported by the evidence in the record. Within five days of the filing of an appeal, the Director of Public Services shall transmit to the City Clerk the terminal application, the sketches of the revoked route and all other data filed therewith, the report of the Director of Public Services, the findings of the Director of Public Services and his decision on the application.
(B) The City Clerk shall make copies of the data provided by the Director of Public Services available to the applicant and to the appellant (if the applicant is not the appellant) for inspection and may give notice to any other interested party who requested notice of the time when the appeal will be considered by the City Council. The appeal shall be scheduled for Council consideration at a Council meeting not later than 21 days following receipt of the appeal. The Council may continue consideration of the appeal for good cause.
(C) If Caltrans, and not the Director of Public Services, denies or revokes terminal access from federally designated highways, no appeal may be made to the City Council, but must be made to Caltrans as may be permitted by Caltrans.
