(A) In case of a protest against any amendment or change of this chapter signed by the owners of 20% or more, either of the area of the lots included in such proposed change; or of those immediately adjacent thereto, either in the rear thereof or on either side thereof, extending 100 feet there from; or of those directly opposite thereto extending 100 feet from the street frontage of such opposite lots; such amendment shall not become effective except by favorable vote of three-fourths (3/4) of all members of the Town Board.
(B) No protest against any change or amendment of this chapter shall be valid or effective under the provisions of the foregoing paragraph unless such protest is in the form of a written petition actually bearing the signatures of the requisite number of property owners and stating that the signers do protest the proposed change or amendment, and unless such protest shall have been received by the Town Board in sufficient time to allow at least two normal workdays prior to the date established for a public hearing on the proposed change or amendment to determine the sufficiency and accuracy of the petition. Such petition shall be accompanied by a map or sketch clearly showing the property of the petitioners in such detail as to show that the ownership requirements of the foregoing paragraph are met, which would compel a three-fourths (3/4) favorable vote by the Town Board.
