Where uncertainty exists as to bounda­ries of any district as shown on said map, the following rules shall ap­ply: 

A.       District boundary lines are intended to follow or be parallel to the centerline of streets, streams, rail­roads and lot or property lines as they exist on plans of record at the time of the adoption of the Chapter unless such district boundary lines are fixed by dimensions as shown on the Zoning Map. 

B.       Where a district boundary is not fixed by dimensions and where said boundary approximately follows a lot line and where it does not scale more than 10 feet there­from, such lot line shall be con­strued to be such boundary line unless specifically shown otherwise. 

C.       The permitted use of more than 1/2 the area of a lot of less than 1 acre shall determine the use for the entire lot. 

(Ord. 84?2, 3/29/1984, §302)



In case of any uncertain­ty, the Zoning Hearing Board shall interpret the intent of the map and determine the location of district boundaries.
