§ 1254.02 Interpretation of district boundaries.

[Ord. 223. Passed 12-10-1985]
Unless otherwise indicated, the boundaries between districts are either the center lines of streets, lanes, lakes, watercourses and rights-of-way, or such lines extended or lines parallel thereto. Where the boundaries of a single district are indicated as a watercourse, right-of-way or power line, for any portion of its length, the district so indicated shall be construed to apply to the entire bed of the street, lane, lake, watercourse or right of way lying within such portion of its length. Where uncertainty exists as to the location of such boundaries as shown on the Zoning Map, the following rules shall apply:
(a) 
Where a district boundary is indicated as approximately following the center line of a street, lane, lake, watercourse or right-of-way, such center line shall be construed to be such boundary.
(b) 
Where a district boundary is indicated as approximately following a lot line or property line, such lot line or property line shall be construed to be such boundary.
(c) 
Where a district boundary divides a lot or runs through undivided property, the location of such boundary, unless otherwise specified by figures on the Zoning Map, shall be determined by the use of the scale appearing on the map.
(d) 
Where figures are shown on the Zoning Map between a street and a district boundary, such figures shall indicate that the district boundary runs parallel to the street line at a distance therefrom equal to the number of feet so indicated, unless specified. Where scale distances do not agree with such figures, such figures shall control.

§ 1254.03 Zoning of federal and state-owned property.

[Ord. 223. Passed 12-10-1985]
Whenever federal or state-owned property is included in one or more zoning districts, it shall be subject to this Zoning Code only insofar as permitted by the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the Commonwealth.
