Zoning districts established by this chapter are shown on the Official Zoning Map of the City of Monroe, which together with all explanatory materials thereon, is hereby made part of this chapter.
The following rules shall be used to determine the precise location of any zoning district boundary shown on the Official Zoning Map of the City of Monroe:
(1) 
Zoning district boundaries shown as following or approximately following the limits of any City, town, or county boundary shall be construed as following such limits.
(2) 
Zoning district boundaries shown as following or approximately following streets or railroad lines shall be construed as following the centerline of such streets or railroad lines.
(3) 
Zoning district boundary lines shown as following or approximately following platted lot lines or other property lines as shown on the City of Monroe or Green County tax maps shall be construed as following such lines.
(4) 
Zoning district boundaries shown as following or approximately following the centerlines of streams, rivers, or other continuously flowing watercourses shall be construed as following the channel centerlines of such watercourses, and, in the event of a natural change in the location of such streams, rivers, or other watercourses, the zoning district boundary shall be construed as moving with the channel centerline.
(5) 
Zoning district boundaries shown as following or approximately following ridgelines or watershed boundaries shall be construed as following such lines.
(6) 
Zoning district boundaries shown as separated from, any of the features listed in Subsections (1) through (5), above, shall be construed to be at such distances there from as are shown on the Official Zoning Map.

Where any uncertainty exists as to the exact location of a zoning district boundary line, as shown on the Official Zoning Map, the location of the line shall be determined by the Zoning Administrator.
(8) 
An annexation ordinance may place the annexed territory in one or more zoning districts under this Title 5. If such ordinance fails to place all or any part of the annexed territory into one or more zoning districts, the territory not placed in any zoning district shall become part of the RH-35 District.
(9) 
Whenever any street, alley, or other public right-of-way is vacated by official action, the zoning districts abutting each side of the former public right-of-way shall automatically be extended to the centerline of the former public right-of-way.

*Note: This district is designed to allow the property owner to create one new lot (with a minimum lot area of 40,000 square feet and a maximum lot area of two acres) from a "parent lot" of between one and 70 acres. The new lot may include the existing residence, allowing the rest of the undeveloped original lot to be sold. The required maximum residential density of one dwelling per 35 acres is intended to retain agricultural or other rural uses until urban services are available to enable a zoning map amendment to a development-oriented zoning district.

Intent. This district is intended to permit both large- and small-scale industrial and office development at an intensity which is consistent with the objectives of economic development and compatibility with adjacent residential and commercial development. The primary distinguishing feature of this district is that it is geared to indoor industrial activities which are not typically associated with high levels of noise, soot, odors and other potential nuisances for adjoining properties.

(1) 
Purpose. The purpose of this district is to provide for the possible relaxation of certain development standards pertaining to the underlying standard zoning district. In exchange for such flexibility, it is anticipated that development within a Planned Development District will reflect the City's planning policies as set forth in the City's Comprehensive Plan and offer one or more of the following advantages:
(a) 
Positively contribute to the appearance and function of land uses and site design in the area.
(b) 
Promote a greater level of architectural quality and be compatible with other structures in the area.
(c) 
Conserve and protect environmentally sensitive areas, areas of natural beauty, and natural green spaces.
(d) 
Preserve the cultural and historic character and significance of existing structures or areas.
(e) 
Provide substantial buffers and transitions between different land uses and densities.
(f) 
Reduce congestion on streets and improve pedestrian and bicycle circulation.
(2) 
Intent. The Planned Development District is established to encourage and promote improved environmental and aesthetic design in the City by allowing for greater freedom, imagination and flexibility in the development of land while insuring substantial compliance to the basic intent of this Title 5 and the general plan for community development. To this intent, it allows variation in the relationship of uses, structures and open spaces in developments conceived and implemented as comprehensive and cohesive unified plans and projects. It is further intended to encourage more rational and economic development with relationship to public services, energy efficiency and community appearance consistent with the overall intent of this Title 5 and the general plan for community development. The Planned Development District shall allow development to be designed, reviewed, approved, constructed, and managed as approved by the Common Council rather than required by a standard zoning district.
(a) 
The City may permit flexibility in the types of uses, area and yard requirements, off-street parking, and/or other regulations set forth in this Title 5 by use of exceptions subject to the demonstration of their appropriateness for the area under consideration.
(b) 
It is not intended that the City will automatically grant exceptions in a Planned Development District, and it is expected the City will grant only such exceptions when they are consistent and comparable with benefits to the community that result from the Planned Development.
(c) 
The City may require, as conditions of approval, any reasonable stipulation, limitation, or design factor which will promote suitable development in the Planned Development District.
(3) 
Applicability.
(a) 
Ownership. A tract of land proposed to be developed as a PD shall be under the control of a single owner, partnership, or corporation, where each owner agrees in advance to be bound by the conditions and regulations which will be effective within the district and to record such covenants, easements, and other provisions with the county.
(b) 
Size. There is no minimum or maximum size for a PD.
(c) 
Condominium projects with jointly owned common spaces and/or commonly owned structural walls, roofs, or other structural elements must be approved as PDs if, as a result of a condominium division of the land, the lot requirements of the district in which the development is located cannot otherwise be met. This requirement would apply to townhouses where the resulting lot size would be less than otherwise required.
(4) 
See § 5-10-33 for the process to establish Planned Development Zoning.
(5) 
See § 5-10-33(3)(c) through (d) for the general development plan and specific implementation plan requirements.
(6) 
Planned developments are exempt from the requirements of § 5-7-2, Group and large development standards.
