17-7-0101 Described.Overlay districts deal with special situations or accomplish specific city goals that cannot be easily or efficiently addressed through the use of base districts. As the name implies, overlay districts “overlay” applicable base district classifications to alter some or all of the zoning regulations that apply to particular sites. Overlay districts are shown on the maps in the Official Zoning Atlas.
17-7-0102 Effect.Overlay district regulations supplement the zoning regulations of the applicable base district. When overlay district standards conflict with applicable base district standards or other regulations of this Zoning Ordinance, the regulations of the overlay district always govern. When no special overlay district standards are specified, the base district standards and all other applicable regulations of this Zoning Ordinance will govern.
