Editor's Note: The Zoning Schedule is located at the end of this chapter.
No ranking or hierarchy is intended among districts; for example, a residential district is not necessarily considered a higher type of district than a commercial. Each district is designed to provide optimum conditions for the intended uses. Uses permitted in a residential district are therefore not automatically permitted in a commercial district, nor are commercial uses necessarily permitted in an industrial district. For convenience and where applicable, uses may be permitted by reference when they are identical in several districts.
A. 
Establishment. The locations of the districts enumerated in § 127-6 and the boundaries of such districts are hereby established as shown upon the map, which is attached hereto and made a part of this chapter, being designated as the "Zoning Map."[1] Said map and all the notations, references and other information shown thereon shall be as much a part of this chapter as if the matters and information set forth by said map were all fully described herein.

B. 
Boundary determination. The boundaries of districts shall be as shown by heavy solid lines on the Zoning Map. Where uncertainty exists as to any of said boundaries as shown on said map, the following rules shall apply:
(1) 
Where such boundaries are indicated as approximately following the center lines of streets, alleys, railroads, streams or canals or power transmission lines, such center lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
(2) 
Where such boundaries are indicted as approximately following the boundary lines of parks or reservations, such lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
(3) 
Where such boundaries are indicated as approximately following lot lines, such lot lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
(4) 
In unsubdivided land and where a district boundary divides a lot, the location of such boundary, unless the same is indicated by dimensions shown on the map, shall be determined by the Zoning Administrator by the use of the scale appearing thereon.
(5) 
Where district boundaries are so indicated that they are approximately parallel to the center lines or street lines of streets or the center lines or right-of-way lines of highways, such district boundaries shall be construed as being parallel thereto and at such distance therefrom as indicated on the Zoning Map. If no distance is given, such dimension shall be determined by the Zoning Administrator by the use of the scale on said Zoning Map.
Minimum lot sizes, maximum lot coverages, yard requirements and green belt requirements for the districts enumerated in § 127-6 are hereby established as shown upon the schedule which is attached hereto and made a part of this chapter, being designated as the "Zoning Schedule."[1] Said schedule and all notations, references and other information shown thereon shall be as much a part of this chapter as if the matters and information set forth by said schedule were all fully described herein.
