The governing body of the municipality, upon review of the self-help business improvement district plan and after public hearing, may adopt an ordinance to designate, establish, and maintain the area described in the plan as a self-help business improvement district. The ordinance shall provide for an effective date of 30 days from the date of adoption of the ordinance by the governing body of the municipality and shall provide that, if the owners of nonexempt real property representing 60 percent of the total fair market value of all real property located within the district, or the owners of at least 50 percent of the parcels of property located within the district, file written objections to the establishment of the district with the clerk of the municipality, the provisions of the ordinance shall be null and void and no district shall be created.
