How to File an Appeal

Appeals must be submitted in writing, together with an appeal notification form, and filed with the City Clerk’s Office no later than 5 p.m. on the last day of the appeal period.

The hearing examiners have jurisdiction over most appeal matters, and procedures can be found in the city code:

An outline of appeal procedures may be found in each chapter identified above. Other city codes or ordinances may provide for hearings to be conducted by a hearing examiner.

The City Council has jurisdiction over limited appeals involving land use decisions and recommendations. (see LUC 20.35.100 and LUC 20.35.300)

In addition, appeals to City Council require a transcript of the proceedings before the Hearing Examiner. Submit the completed Transcript Request Form to the hearing examiner's office.

For more details regarding Council rules of procedure for appeals, see Resolution 9473.
