There is hereby established a master plan setting forth the existing and proposed major street system for and in the City of Tooele which plan or map shall constitute an addition to the official map heretofore adopted and which plan or map is on file in the office of the Tooele County Recorder and is hereby adopted and made a part of this Title, the same as if set out in full herein.

7-23-3. Building permit - Power of the Director on appeal.

In order to preserve the integrity of the official City map no permit shall be issued for any building or structure or part thereof on any land located between the mapped lines of any street as shown on the official map. The Director of Community Development shall have the power, upon an appeal filed with it by the owner of any such land, to authorize the grant of a permit for a building or structure or part thereof within any mapped street location in any case in which the Director, upon the evidence, finds (1) that the property of the appellant of which such mapped street location forms a part will not yield a reasonable return to the owner unless such permit be granted; or (2) that, balancing of interest in the municipality in preserving the integrity of the official map and the interest of the owner in the use and benefits of the property, the grant of such permit is required by consideration of justice and equity. Before taking any such action, the Director shall hold a hearing thereon. In the event that the Director decides to authorize a building permit, the Director shall have the power to specify the exact location, ground area, height, and other details and conditions of extent and character and also the duration of the building, structure, or part thereof to be permitted.

(Ord. 2016-15, 10-19-2016) (Ord. 1982-17, 07-16-1982) (Ord. 1982-16, 07-07-1982)
