A dimensional variance shall be deemed automatically null and void if the property, building or structure for which the variance was granted is for any reason demolished or destroyed. Thus, a new replacement building or structure may be required to conform to regulations in effect at that time. The granting of a dimensional variance becomes official only upon issuance of an improvement location permit for the subject property. The issuance of said permit must occur within 90 days from the date that the dimensional variance was approved by the Board of Zoning Appeals or the approval becomes null and void. Actual construction must begin within 90 days from the date that the improvement location permit is obtained or said permit shall become null and void.
