S.C. Court of Appeals dismisses appeal from review board as untimely

In Blind Tiger v. City of Charleston, the Blind Tiger pub attempted to appeal a decision of the City's Architectural Review Board denying it permission to make alterations to the premises. Under S.C. Code 6-29-900 (A), an appeal must be filed within thirty days after the affected party receives actual notice of the decision of the board of architectural review. Blind Tiger contended it complied with the requirement contained in section 6-29-900 as it appealed within thirty days of receipt of the Board's written notice of the decision. The court of appeals disagreed because the Blind Tiger had oral notice of the decision many days prior to the receipt of the letter.
