be amended, supplemented, changed, modified, or repealed by action of the board. Any such
modification or repeal shall be proposed in a resolution or ordinance, as appropriate, presented to
the board for adoption in the same manner and upon the same notice as required for the adoption of
the original resolution or ordinance. The amendment, supplement, change, modification, or repeal
may be requested through a petition by twenty percent of the landowners in the zoning district or
districts requesting change. For purposes of this section, the term, landowner, means any person who
owns land in the county as evidenced by records in the offices of the register of deeds and clerk of
courts. If land is sold under a contract for deed that is of record in the office of the register of deeds
in the county, both the landowner and the individual purchaser of the land, as named in the contract,
are treated as landowners. Any charitable, benevolent, or religious society that owns any agricultural
land in the county is not a landowner for purposes of this section if the agricultural land is exempt
from taxation pursuant to § 10-4-10, but any such society is a landowner for purposes of this section
for any of its real property in the county that is not exempt from taxation pursuant to § 10-4-10.
