Whenever the consent of adjoining or neighboring owners is required as a prerequisite of the conduct of any business or occupation, or the location of any establishment, such consents must be obtained by securing the necessary signatures to a written consent petition. Such petition shall be filed with the clerk when signed. Consents once given and filed shall not be renewed for the continuous conduct of the same business whether by the same proprietor or not.
It shall be unlawful to forge any name to such a petition or to falsely represent that the names thereon have been properly placed thereon if such is not the fact.
Each consent when filed shall be accompanied by the affidavit of the person securing the signatures that each signature appearing thereon was properly secured and written on and that the petition contains the necessary number of signatures required by ordinance.
The frontage consent requirements contained in this chapter shall not be construed as amending or changing any zoning provision of the city; and no such provision shall be construed as permitting the erection of a structure or building; or the conduct of a business; or the commission of any act in any location where such structure, building, business or act is prohibited by any zoning provision of the city. (Ord. 203, 1-16-1978)
