§ 4.102  DISTRICT MAPS.
   (a)   Maps incorporated. The districts described above and the boundaries of such districts are shown upon the maps attached hereto and made a part of this zoning ordinance, being designated as the “district maps” and said maps and all the notations, references and other information shown thereon shall be as much a part of this ordinance as if the matters and information set forth by said map were all fully described herein. The district maps are available in the planning and development department.
   (b)   Boundaries of districts. Where uncertainty exists with respect to the boundaries of the various districts, as shown on the map accompanying and made a part of this ordinance, the following rules shall apply.
      (1)   The district boundaries are either streets or alleys unless otherwise shown, and where the districts designated on the map accompanying and made a part of this ordinance are bounded approximately by the street or alley lines, the centerline of said street or alley shall be construed to be the boundary of such district.
      (2)   Where the district boundaries are not otherwise indicated and where the property has been or may hereafter be divided into blocks and lots, the district boundaries shall be construed to be lot lines, and where the districts designated on the map accompanying and made a part of this ordinance are bounded approximately by lot lines, said lot line shall be construed to be the boundary of such districts unless said boundaries are otherwise indicated on the map.
      (3)   In unsubdivided property, the district boundary lines on the map accompanying and made a part of this ordinance shall be determined by use of the scale contained on such map, unless dimensions are shown.
   (c)   Omitted land. If, because of error or omission in the district maps, any property in the City of Fort Worth is not shown as being in a zoning district, or if for any other reason the zoning cannot be properly determined on any property in the City of Fort Worth, such property shall be classified as “AG” agricultural until changed by amendment.
   (d)   Initial zoning. In the case of property annexed to the city without a specific action designating zoning districts for the property, the property shall be classified as “AG” agricultural until changed by amendment.
