The Architectural Review Board shall serve as the Board of Appeals to hear and determine protests filed by a property owner as to sidewalk, drivewalk, driveway approach, carriage walk, tree lawn, or street area reconstruction or repair. There shall be no fee for any such appeal. The Architectural Review Board sitting as the Board of Appeals shall have the authority to modify, alter or revoke any such notice, as to the amount or type of work required, or the time in which it must be completed, consistent with the City ordinances and the approved Administrative Guidelines regarding sidewalk reconstruction or repair. The Architectural Review Board shall also have the authority to waive strict compliance with such requirements where such compliance would cause undue hardship, provided however that such a waiver will not cause or continue a public nuisance or an unsafe condition. The Architectural Review Board shall not have the authority to rule on matters of policy, to modify the approved Administrative Guidelines, or to grant relief from any notice requiring the correction of a condition deemed to be an emergency.
