Council, from time to time, may amend the Zoning Map or regulations set forth in this Zoning Code. Such amendments must be made in accordance with the provisions of Division Thirteen, Article Eleven, of Chapter Twenty-Four of the Illinois Revised Statutes, as amended.
(a) Any person desiring a change in the zoning of property shall make an application to, or offer a proposed ordinance to, Council, for such purpose. Such person shall also provide the names and addresses of all property owners within 150 feet of any property proposed to be changed in zoning. Such application or proposed ordinance shall be accompanied by a fee sufficient to defray the cost of processing the same, such fee to be fixed in each case by Council.
(b) If the Planning Commission recommends a denial of the requested action, or if a written protest against any such proposed change in the boundaries of a district is made by twenty percent of the neighboring property owners, the amendment shall not be passed by Council, except by a favorable vote of two-thirds of the elected members of Council.
(c) The failure to notify property owners provided for in subsection (a) hereof shall not invalidate an ordinance nor act to prevent its passage, unless, in the opinion of Council, such failure is intentional.
(Ord. 340. Passed 12-19-66.)
