1. Have a placard containing the words "Proposed change in zoning ordinance in this block" printed in large type, to be placed at each end of every block in which a change in zoning district boundaries is proposed at least fifteen (15) days prior to any public hearing held by the Committee having jurisdiction thereof. Such placard shall also have prominently displayed such relevant facts and information pertaining to the proposed change, a designation by street address of the property(s) to be changed and the date when those interested may appear before the committee and be heard.

2. Have notice of the public hearing on the bill and the proposed changes published in the official newspaper of the City. The City Journal, at least fifteen (15) days prior to said hearing.

Except as provided in subsection D of this section, the petitioner proposing or recommending such change in the zoning law shall be required to mail a notice to every property owner in the affected City block(s) and the blocks immediately adjacent to the affected City block(s), containing such relevant facts and information pertaining to the proposed change and a designation by street address of the property(s) to be changed. The Clerk shall require the petitioner to present the letter and a list of all property owners to whom said letter shall have been mailed at least fifteen (15) days prior to any public hearing by the Committee having jurisdiction thereof.

C. When any proposed ordinance is being considered by the Board of Aldermen as part of the implementation of:

1. Any ordinance approving a development plan with the right of eminent domain pursuant to the Urban Redevelopment Corporations Law, Chapter 353, Mo. R.S., 1978, as amended;

which proposed ordinance has as its subject matter the making of a change in the district map of the zoning code, the petitioner shall cause to be published in two daily newspapers of general circulation in the City, a notice of the pendency of said bill. Said notice shall contain such relevant facts and information pertaining to the proposed change, a designation by house numbers of the property to be changed and the date when adjoining property owners affected thereby, or others interested therein, may appear before the committee and be heard. Notices shall be published at least fifteen (15) days prior to any public hearing held by the committee having jurisdiction thereof, and proof of such publication shall be filed with the Clerk of the Board of Aldermen. Before any action shall be taken by the Clerk as provided in this chapter, the petitioner proposing or recommending such change in the zoning law shall deposit with the Clerk of the Board of Aldermen the sum of one hundred dollars ($100.00) to cover the approximate cost of this procedure. Should said one hundred dollars ($100.00) deposit be found to be insufficient to cover the actual costs, then petitioner, upon notice from the Clerk, shall immediately and prior to the taking of any action, supply such additional sum of money required for this purpose. Provided, however, that under no condition shall any money be refunded for failure of said bill to be enacted into law. Any part of the money so deposited which is not expanded by the Clerk shall be refunded to the petitioner.
