(A)   Prior to filing an application for a permit to demolish or alter a main residential building, the applicant shall submit:
      (1)   A fully dimensioned and scaled materials removal plan that clearly demonstrates that the project does or does not meet the criteria listed in §§ 17.10.030 or 17.10.040 of this chapter; and
      (2)   Documentation sufficient for city staff to determine the level of review, if any, that is required by the California Environmental Quality Act ("CEQA").
   (B)   If the proposed project is subject to the provisions of § 17.10.030 of this chapter, the applicant shall submit an "Application for a Discretionary Demolition Permit" ("application") along with all other required planning applications for the proposed work and the payment of all applicable fees.  The application shall contain such information as is requested by the Director of Community Development, including one of the following:
      (1)   Documentation from a previous survey conducted by the city, including a suggested code pursuant to the State of California historic property status codes and other site data;
      (2)   A written historic assessment and determination of a potential historic code for the property, prepared by a city-approved historic preservation expert retained by the applicant; or
      (3)   A written request to be exempt from these requirements due to a perceived obvious lack of historic significance in lieu of an assessment required by divisions (B)(1) and (2) above.  The Historic Preservation Commission shall consider whether there is merit to the request and either reject the request or require additional documentation pursuant to division (B)(2) above.
