Whenever the consent of adjoining or neighboring owners is required as a prerequisite to 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Consents once given and filed shall not be withdrawn; and such petitions need not be renewed for the continuous conduct of the same business, whether by the same proprietor or not.
It shall be unlawful for any person to sign any but his own 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 affixed and that the petition contains the necessary number of signatures required by this code.
The frontage consent requirements contained in this code shall not be construed as amending or changing any zoning provision of the village; 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 or are prohibited by any zoning regulation of the village.
