C. Except as provided in subsection E or F of this section, territory within an urbanized area shall not hereafter be incorporated as a city or town, and the board of supervisors does not have jurisdiction to take any action on a petition pursuant to section 9-101 to incorporate a city or town within such area, unless either:

1. There is submitted with the petition for incorporation a resolution adopted by the city or town causing the urbanized area to exist approving the proposed incorporation.

2.

D. If a resolution or affidavit is filed with the board of supervisors pursuant to subsection C of this section, the board shall take action on the petition pursuant to section 9-101 to incorporate the proposed area.

If any such city or town is declared to have been unlawfully incorporated by the final judgment of a court of competent jurisdiction after June 20, 1968, all or any portion of the territory of the city or town may be incorporated without regard to this section if petitions praying for the incorporation thereof or petitions praying for the calling of an election for such purpose are filed with the board of supervisors within one year after the date on which the judgment becomes final.
