§ 150-4 Zoning Map.

[Amended 5-16-1996 by L.L. No. 3-1996]
The boundaries of said districts are hereby established as shown on the "Zoning Map, Village of Greenport," dated October 28, 1971, with all explanatory matter thereon, which is hereby adopted and made a part of this chapter. A copy of said map, indicating the latest amendments, shall be kept up-to-date in the office of the Building Inspector for the use and benefit of the public.

§ 150-5 District boundaries.

In determining the boundaries of districts shown on the map, the following shall apply:
Where district boundaries are indicated as approximately following the center lines of streets, highways, waterways or railroad rights-of-way or such lines extended, such center lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
Where such boundaries are indicated as approximately following the property lines of parks or other publicly owned lands, such lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
Unless otherwise shown, all district boundaries running parallel to streets shall be construed to be 100 feet back from the rights-of-way of said streets.
In all cases where a district boundary divides a lot in one ownership and more than 50% of the area of such lot lies in the less restricted district, the regulations prescribed by this chapter for the less restricted district shall apply to such portion of the more restricted portion of said lot as lies within 30 feet of such district boundary. For purposes of this section, the more restricted district shall be deemed that district subject to regulations which prohibit the use intended to be made of said lot or which require higher standards with respect to coverage, yards, screening, landscaping and similar requirements.
In all cases where a district boundary line is located not farther than 15 feet away from a lot line of record, such boundary line shall be construed to coincide with such lot line.
In all cases where a lot abuts Greenport Harbor, the zoning district boundary line shall be deemed to coincide with the incorporation limits of the Village, and in any case involving a body of water wholly within the incorporated limits of the Village, the boundary line shall run to the midpoint of said body of water.
In all other cases where dimensions are not shown on the map, the location of boundaries shown on the map shall be determined by the use of the scale appearing thereon.
The Zoning Board of Appeals shall have the power and duty to interpret boundaries as provided in § 150-26A.
