The public interest would be better served by the exemption.
When considering a request for an exemption, the Mayor may consider alternative measures proposed by the applicant.
The DDOE shall give notice of any exemption granted pursuant to this section to the Council and affected Advisory Neighborhood Commission no less than 10 days from the date the exemption is granted.
