(a) The Building Commissioner and City Engineer shall review Protected Hillside Area applications. In connection with such review, they are authorized to consult and obtain opinions from such other professionals as hydrological and geotechnical engineers, botanists, biologists and landscape architects as they may deem necessary. No Protected Hillside Area permit shall be issued until the application has been reviewed and approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission. Any permit for activity within a Protected Hillside Area shall be denied if the proposal does not comply with the requirements of this chapter or if the proposal is so designed or will be so located, constructed or maintained as to endanger the public health, safety and welfare based upon generally accepted engineering principles.
(b) Appeals shall be to the City's Board of Zoning Appeals and shall be governed by the provisions of Chapter 1325 of these Codified Ordinances.
(c) Compliance with the provisions of this chapter does not relieve the applicant from compliance with other applicable provisions of these Codified Ordinances. In the event of a conflict between the provisions of this chapter and any other provision of these Codified Ordinances, the more restrictive provision shall control.
