In any officially designated urban renewal areas, as defined in the Federal Housing Law, all uses within such area shall be conditional uses, notwithstanding any other provision of the district regulations contained in this chapter, commencing on time with the date of the resolution of the local public agency requesting Federal funding of a designated area, and ending on the date of final approval of the area renewal plan, or the expiration of 12 months, whichever be shorter period of time. All applications for building permits for new construction in such areas shall be referred to the Zoning Board of Appeals by the Building Inspector for action pursuant to § 50-160. No such application may be granted unless the Board shall affirmatively find that approval thereof does not or will not conflict with, obstruct or unduly interfere with the development of the area renewal plan, or the renewal program of the City.
