(A) The zoning map referred to in this chapter is entitled the “Zoning Map for Hazard, Kentucky,” and may be referred to as the zoning map. The zoning map is hereby made a part of this chapter. There is on file with the City Clerk one copy of the zoning map and text, comprising together the official zoning code for the city. A certified copy of the zoning map and text are on file with the Planning Commission.
(B) The following rules shall be used to interpret the exact location of the zoning district boundaries shown on the zoning map:
(1) Where a zoning district boundary follows a street or railroad right-of-way, that right-of-way is the boundary of the district.
(2) Where a zoning district boundary approximately follows a lot or boundary line, the line is the boundary of the district.
(3) Where a zoning district boundary follows a stream or the shore of a body of water, that stream or shoreline is the boundary of the district.
(4) Where a zoning district boundary does not clearly follow any of the features mentioned in divisions (1) through (3) above, its exact location on the ground shall be determined by measurement according to the map scale. If the area in question was delineated by amendment to this chapter, the wording of the amendment as recorded in the official minutes of the Board of Commissioners shall define the boundary or boundaries in question.
(5) In any case where the exact location of a boundary is still not clear, the Board of Zoning Adjustment shall use these rules to determine the exact location upon application by the Administrative Officer for an original interpretation.
