Zoning Appealed Applications

How do you all approach an applicant changing their request after a Commission denial and prior to the appeal at Council? Is the appeal limited to the request at the time of denial? Do you consider it to be a new application if they want to change it?

I'll hang up and take the answer off the air.

Depending on the scale or substance of the change(s), I would tell them to take it back to the Commission for re-review/ask for reconsideration.

I would let it go to Council.

I'd say it's like two diverging tracks- the appeal can go to Council, the reconsideration can go to Commission, and if both result in an approval, the applicant can choose which one they want to pursue.

If it is a substantial change, whatever that is, then it's a new commission application. If not than it's appeal time.
