Within 45 days of the receipt of this demolition plan, the Commission will review the application at a public hearing of the Commission to determine if the structure is preferably preserved. Public notice of such hearing will be published by the Commission at the expense of the applicant in a local newspaper of the time, place and purpose of the hearing once in each of 2 successive weeks, the first publication not less than 14 days before the day of said hearing. The Commission will also mail a copy of this notice to the applicant and to all owners of all property within 300 feet of the applicant’s property as appearing on the most recent tax list.
