A. The owner(s) of a designated historic structure shall keep in good repair the buildings, walls, landscaping, and other portions of the historic structure named as part of the designation. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent the ordinary maintenance or repair of any exterior architectural features in any or property covered by § 20.60.040 of this chapter.
B. Maintenance and repair shall not involve a change in design, and to the extent possible, material, or external appearance thereof. However, this chapter does not prevent the alteration or removal of a historic structure and/or its related architectural features when the Development Services Director finds and certifies that alteration or removal is required for the public safety due to an unsafe or dangerous condition which cannot be rectified through the use of the California State Historic Building Code. Such architectural features shall be replaced according to the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation.
