Without following the procedures otherwise required preliminary to the adoption of a zoning ordinance, the Council, to protect the public safety, health, and welfare, may adopt as an urgency measure an interim ordinance prohibiting any uses which may be in conflict with a contemplated zoning proposal which the Council, Commission, or the Community Development Department is considering or studying or intends to study within a reasonable time. Such urgency measure shall require a four-fifths (4/5) vote of the Council for adoption. Such interim ordinance shall be of no further force and effect one hundred (120) days from the date of adoption thereof; provided, however, after notice pursuant to the provisions of Section 9-4.2910 of this article and a public hearing, the Council may, by a four-fifths (4/5) vote, extend such interim ordinance for one year. Not more than two (2) such extensions shall be adopted. When such interim ordinance has been adopted, every subsequent ordinance adopted pursuant to the provisions of this section, covering the whole or a part of the same property, shall automatically terminate and be of no further force or effect upon the termination of the first such ordinance, or any extension thereof.
