Issues regarding compliance with pertinent code standards may provide the basis for an appeal to the Land Use Board of Appeals and shall be raised and submitted before the record is closed.  Issues must be raised with sufficient specificity to enable City Council to respond to the issue.  Failure to raise an issue in person or by letter, or failure to provide sufficient specificity to afford the decision-maker an opportunity to respond to the issue precludes appeal to the State Land Use Board of Appeals on that issue.  In addition, failure to raise constitutional or other issues relating to proposed conditions of approval, with sufficient specificity to allow City Council to respond to the issue, precludes an action for damages in circuit court. 

City Council shall review the application under a Type II procedure and make a decision to approve or deny the application according to the applicable criteria specified above.  All interested persons are invited to attend and be heard.
