The Board of Zoning Appeals shall have the power to hear and decide appeals concerning an alleged error or an interpretation, order, requirement, decision or determination of the Zoning Inspector in the administration and enforcement of this Zoning Code. Such question of interpretation may include a determination of:
(a) The meaning of any portion of the text of this Zoning Code or any condition or requirement made under the provisions of this Zoning Code or of any order previously issued by the Board;
(b) The exact location of any zoning district boundary, if uncertainty remains after following the rules specified in Section 1248.04;
(c) Whether a proposed nonconforming use is of a more restricted nature than the existing nonconforming use that is proposed to be replaced, as provided in Section 1282.02; and
(d) Alleged inaction or improper action by the Zoning Inspector as the same relates to the application of zoning laws in the City. Appeals shall be prepared in written form and shall specify the grounds thereof, setting forth the material subject matter sufficiently to identify the matters involved upon appeal. A copy thereof shall be filed with the Board and with the Zoning Inspector, who shall then forthwith prepare and transmit to the Board all papers and records of his or her office bearing thereon.
