A Conditional Use Permit or Variance may be revoked by the Board of Zoning Appeals, or City Planning Commission as appropriate, in accordance with the provisions of this Section, if the recipient of the Conditional Use Permit or the Variance fails to develop or maintain the property in accordance with the plans submitted, the requirements of this Zoning Ordinance, or any additional requirements lawfully imposed as a condition of approval of a conditional use or variance.

Such decision shall be rendered by written order containing the specific reasons or findings of fact that support the decision.
D. Notification of Decision. The Zoning Administrator shall send such decision within five (5) working days to the holder of the Conditional Use Permit or Variance and any other person previously requesting notification.
E. Evidence.
