SEC. 16-576.  PROCEDURE–HOW INITIATED; REAPPLICATION.
   (A)   Zone boundary amendments may be initiated by:
      (1)   A resolution of intention by the city council;
      (2)   A resolution of intention by the commission;
      (3)   An application by an owner of the affected property or the owner’s designated attorney in fact; or
      (4)   An application by a plaintiff in an action in eminent domain to acquire the property as to which the zone boundary or property use amendment is proposed.
   (B)   If an application for an amendment is denied by the city council, a reapplication seeking an amendment that affects the same property shall not be initiated within 12 months of the denial.  This provision may be waived by affirmative vote of a majority of the city council if the city council finds that, by reason of changed physical, legal or sociological circumstances, reconsideration of the amendment would be in the public interest.
