A. The several provisions of this title shall be severable in accordance with the following rules:
1. If any court of competent jurisdiction shall adjudge any provisions of this title to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect any other provisions of this title.
2. If any court of competent jurisdiction shall adjudge invalid the application of any provision of this title to a particular parcel of land, a particular structure or a particular use, such judgment shall not affect the application of said provision to any other land, structure or use.
B. Whenever the provisions of this title are declared invalid in their application to any particular parcel of land, the zoning map shall continue to show such parcel in the zoning district applicable thereto pursuant to this title unless and until such district is changed by an amendment adopted by the board of trustees; provided, however, that the parcel in question shall also be marked with a star or other distinctive marking to direct attention to the court decree affecting said parcel. The zoning administrator shall maintain a file of any such decrees. The provisions of any such decree shall be deemed to modify the otherwise applicable provisions of this title as they apply to said parcel to the extent provided in said decree, but said parcel shall otherwise remain subject to the provisions of this title. (Ord. 99-02, 1-7-1999)
