§ 802  DESTRUCTION OR DEMOLITION OF NONCONFORMING STRUCTURES.
   (A)   Should a legal nonconforming structure or nonconforming portion of a structure be destroyed by any means to an extent of more than 75% of its replacement cost at the time of destruction, as determined by the Zoning Officer, the property owner shall be given six months in which action must be taken to rebuild, repair or replace the damaged structure. If such action is not taken within such six-month period, then it shall not be rebuilt, repaired or replaced except in conformity with the provisions of this chapter.
   (B)   Should a legal nonconforming structure or portion of a structure be demolished at the direction of the owner or by governmental action, it shall not be reconstructed except in conformity with the provisions of this chapter.
   (C)   In rebuilding, repairing or replacing a structure or portion of a structure as provided in division (A) above, the previously existing degree of nonconformity shall in no way be enlarged or extended except as provided in § 803; however, this does not preclude the use of modern construction materials and methods.
