The City Council may, from time to time, on its own motion or on petition, amend, supplement, change, modify, or repeal by ordinance the boundaries of districts or regulations or restrictions herein established. Any proposed amendment, supplement, change, modification, or repeal shall first be submitted to the City Planning Commission for its recommendations and report. If the City Planning Commission makes no report within thirty (30) days, it shall be considered to have made a report approving the proposed amendment, supplement, modification, or change. Upon the filing of the recommendations and report by the City Planning Commission with respect to any proposed amendment, supplement, change, modification, or repeal, the City Council shall proceed to hold a public hearing in relation thereto, giving at least fifteen (15) days' notice of the time and place of such hearing, which notice shall first be published in a newspaper having a general circulation in the City of Caruthersville.
Such regulations, restrictions, and boundaries may from time to time be amended, supplemented, changed, modified or repealed. In case, however, of a protest against such change duly signed and acknowledged by the owners of thirty percent (30%) or more, either of the areas of the land (exclusive of streets and alleys) included in such proposed change or within an area determined by lines drawn parallel to and one hundred eighty-five (185) feet distant from the boundaries of the district proposed to be changed, such amendment shall not become effective except by the favorable vote of two-thirds (⅔) of all the members of the City Council. The provisions of Section 89.050, RSMo., relative to public hearing and official notice shall apply equally to all changes or amendments.
