All approvals granted by the Planning Commission shall expire and become ineffective for all purposes one year after the date of Planning Commission approval unless work is actually commenced in the opinion of the City Engineer.  The Planning Commission may, however, grant an extension of such time as it deems necessary, not to exceed 6 months, upon a showing in writing of undue hardship or practical difficulty on the part of the owner or subdivider, and provided the approval of the time extension is granted by the Planning Commission prior to the expiration of the one year time period.
