(a) 
Where uncertainty exists with respect to district boundaries shown on the Zoning Map, the following rules shall apply:
(1) 
Normally, district boundaries follow street and lot lines. Where the designation on the Zoning Map indicates a boundary within 25 feet of a lot or street line, such lot or street line shall be construed as the district boundary.
(2) 
Where an apparent boundary is within 25 feet of two lot lines, the district boundary shall be construed to be the nearest lot line.
(3) 
Where an apparent boundary line is not within 25 feet of a lot line, the Zoning Map shall be scaled to determine the location of the boundary.
(4) 
Where practical, it is desirable for the zoning district boundaries to proceed in straight lines, rather than curved or stepped.
