A.   Expiration: Any reasonable accommodation approved in accordance with the terms of this article shall expire within twelve (12) months from the effective date of the approval, or at an alternative time specified in the approval, unless:
      1.   A building permit has been issued and construction has commenced; or
      2.   The right granted by the accommodation has been exercised; or
      3.   A time extension has been granted by the community development director.
   B.   Discontinuance: A reasonable accommodation shall lapse if the exercise of rights granted by it is discontinued for one hundred eighty (180) consecutive days. In addition, if the disabled person for whom the reasonable accommodation was granted vacates the residence, the reasonable accommodation shall remain in effect only if: 1) the community development director determined pursuant to section 10-3-3675 of this chapter that the reasonable accommodation shall run with the land, or 2) another disabled person who requires the accommodation to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy the dwelling now occupies the dwelling. The director may request that the person seeking to retain the accommodation provide documentation that the occupants are disabled persons and the existing accommodation is necessary for them to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy the dwelling. Failure to provide such documentation within ten (10) days of the date of a request by the city shall constitute grounds for discontinuance by the city of a previously approved reasonable accommodation.
