§ 156.041  GOVERNMENT DISTRICT.
   (A)   Intent.  It is the intent of the Commission to establish a Government District.  The purpose of this Zone is to identify property owned by federal, state, county, or municipal governments or by government-owned public corporations or agencies; also, for the purpose of putting the public on notice that the areas so zoned are outside the jurisdiction of the administrators of this zoning code and that development thereon is at the discretion of the government owning the property.  It is further intended that this show of public concern may temper the proposals for development in this district and serve to encourage government conformity to the standard of this District.
   (B)   Extent.  By definition, this zoning classification applies to all property owned by governments and government-owned public corporations or agencies; therefore, this zoning classification shall automatically become the zoning classification of any property acquired by such government or government-owned public corporation or agency, concurrently with such acquisition.
   (C)   Reversion to previous classification.  Upon sale or other final release of property by a government or government-owned public corporation or agency, to an individual, partnership, private corporation, or other non-public organization or association, such property shall revert to the zoning classification or classifications which applied prior to public ownership, if in fact it was ever under such other classification or classifications subsequent to the adoption of this zoning code.  This provision applies to property acquired by such public bodies after the adoption of this zoning code and subsequently resold.
   (D)   Reversion to adjoining classification.  Upon sale or other final release of property by a government or government-owned public corporation or agency, to an individual, partnership, private corporation, or other non-public organization or association, such property shall revert to the most restrictive of the adjoining or nearest zoning classification, if such property being sold was in fact publicly owned at the time of the adoption of this zoning code and has not been privately owned at any time subsequent to such adoption and prior to such sale.
   (E)   Rights of government not conveyable.  The rights of government which prevent it from being subject to the provisions of this zoning code are not conveyable to an individual, partnership, private corporation, or other non-public organization or association, and upon sale or other final release of public property to an individual or other non-public body, any construction or development or use of that property which does not conform to the permitted construction, uses and regulations in force for the zoning district to which such property reverts, becomes a non-conforming use subject to the restrictions of this zoning code.
   (F)   Rights of government extend to lessee.  The rights of government which prevent it from being subject to the provisions of this zoning code permit it to develop its property at its own discretion, subject to statutes and regulations based on health and safety, and development of publicly-owned property in this zoning district by leases, whether public or private, shall be subject only to the discretion of the government or government-owned public corporation or agency owning the property and such statutes and regulations as are based on health and safety.
   (G)   Adult-oriented businesses prohibited.
