25.4.C Structural Alterations

No structural alterations are permitted for any nonconforming structure, except in the following situations:

1. When the alteration is required by law or is necessary to restore the structure to a safe condition upon the order of any official charged with protecting the public safety.

2. When the alteration will result in eliminating the nonconformity.

3. Structures that are legally nonconforming as to height, floor area ratio, yards, lot area per dwelling unit, open space, or parking may be maintained, structurally altered, or increased in cubical content, provided such alteration or increase in cubical content does not further increase the extent of the nonconformity, expand, extend or increase a nonconforming building height, or permit an increase in the number of dwelling units. Limitations as to cubical content and increase in floor area do not apply to existing industrial uses in the Vieux CarrĂ©.
