1.07.01   Adoption.  The location and boundaries of the zones established by this zoning ordinance are shown on the official zoning map, entitled "Official Zoning Map of the City of Covington, Kentucky." That map-together with all notations, references, data, and other information shown on the map-is hereby adopted and incorporated into this zoning ordinance. The official zoning map must remain on file (in paper copy or digital file format) in the offices of Planning and Development Services of Kenton County (PDS) and be available for public inspection. An up-to-date, exact copy of the zoning map must also be kept on file in the offices of the city department designated by the City Commission.
   1.07.02   Zoning Map Amendments.
   (A)   Where changes are made to zone boundaries in accordance with the procedures of § 12.04 and the Kentucky Revised Statutes, such changes must be made on the official zoning map promptly after the amendment has been approved by the City Commission. The City Commission must provide PDS with a certified copy of the amendment in order that the official zoning map may be changed. Failure to comply with the procedures of this paragraph does not affect the validity of an approved zoning map amendment.
   (B)   No changes of any nature may be made on the official zoning map that are not in conformity with the procedures set forth in this zoning ordinance.
   1.07.03   Replacement of Official Zoning Map.  If the official zoning map becomes damaged, destroyed, lost, or is otherwise deemed in need of replacement because of its age or because of inaccurate or outdated base map information (e.g., rights-of-way or subdivision information), Planning and Development Services of Kenton County may prepare a reproduction of the official zoning map, which will supersede the prior official zoning map. Such a replacement may not have the effect of amending the official zoning map.
