Such steps may include but may not be limited to consultation with civic groups, public agencies and interested citizens, recommendations for acquisition of property by public or private bodies or agencies, and exploration of the possibility of moving one or more structures or other features. No demolition shall take place until permitted pursuant to the provisions of this chapter and the Cincinnati Building Code. Any unlawful demolition of a Historic Asset shall be punishable by the criminal and civil penalties set forth in Chapter 1451 below and the Cincinnati Municipal Code.
