A.   Whenever the consent of the adjoining or neighboring owners is required as a prerequisite to the conduct of any business or occupation, or the location of any establishment, such consent must be obtained by securing the necessary signatures to a written consent petition. Such petition shall be filed with the clerk when signed.
   B.   Consents once given and filed shall not be withdrawn; and such petitions need not be renewed for the continuous conduct of the same business, whether by the same proprietor or not.
   C.   It shall be unlawful to forge any name to such a petition or to represent falsely that the names thereon have been properly placed thereon if such is not the fact.
   D.   Each consent when filed shall be accompanied by the affidavit of the person securing the signatures that each signature appearing therein was properly secured and written on; and that the petition contains the necessary number of signatures required by this code.
   E.   The frontage consent requirements contained in this code shall not be construed to amend or change any zoning provision of the municipality; 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 law of the municipality. (1968 Code)
