A. In reviewing a proposed demolition in the Historic District, the DRB shall recommend approval, if it determines that preservation of the structure is physically or economically infeasible.

B. If the DRB finds preservation of the structure to be feasible, the City shall notify persons or groups interested in historic preservation, who may encourage the owner to preserve the structure or find a buyer willing to preserve the structure. If the owner is not convinced to retain the structure, or no one agrees to purchase it within ninety (90) days after the DRB’s first consideration of the proposal, the DRB’s findings shall cease to be cause for refusal to issue the demolition permit.
