Where uncertainty exists with respect to the boundaries of the various districts as shown in the Zoning District Map, the following rules shall apply:
Where a boundary line is given a position within a street, alley, or non-navigable stream, it shall be deemed to be in the center of the street, alley, or stream, and if the actual location of such street, alley, or stream varies slightly from the location as shown on the Zoning District Map, then the actual location shall control.
Where a boundary line is shown as being located a specific distance from a street line or other physical feature, this distance shall control.
Where a boundary line is shown adjoining or coincident with a railroad, it shall be deemed to be in the center of the railroad right-of-way and distances measured from a railroad shall be measured from the center of the designated main line track.
Where the district boundaries are not otherwise indicated and where the property has been or may hereafter be divided into blocks and lots, such boundaries shall be construed to be the lot lines and where the districts are bounded approximately by lot lines, said lot lines shall be construed to be the boundary of such districts unless said boundaries are otherwise indicated on the map.
In unsubdivided property, unless otherwise indicated, the location of district boundary lines shall be determined by the use of the scale provided on the Zoning District Map.
[CC 1983 App. B Art. III §6; Ord. No. 379.5, 5-18-1970]
No building or structure shall be erected, converted, enlarged, reconstructed, moved, or structurally altered nor shall any building or land be used except for the use permitted in the district in which the building or land is located.
No building or structure shall be erected, converted, enlarged, reconstructed, moved, or structurally altered, except in conformity with the height, yard, area per family, parking and other regulations prescribed herein for the district in which the building is located.
The minimum parking, yards, and other open spaces, including lot areas per family required by this Chapter, shall be provided for each and every building or structure hereafter erected, and such minimum parking, yards, open spaces, and lot areas for each and every building or structure whether existing at the time of passage of this Chapter (May 18, 1970) or hereafter erected shall not be encroached upon or be considered as a yard or open space requirement for any other building or structure.
Where a lot has less area than the minimum requirements for the district within which the lot is located and was a lot of record in separate ownership from adjacent property at the time of passage of this Chapter (May 18, 1970), that lot may be used only for single-family dwelling purposes or for any non-dwelling purpose permitted in the district within which such lot is located.
Every building hereafter erected or structurally altered shall be located on a lot as herein defined and in no case shall there be more than one (1) main building on one (1) lot unless otherwise provided in this Chapter.
