§ 157.165  INTERPRETATION OF DISTRICT BOUNDARIES.
   Where uncertainty exists as to the boundaries of districts as shown on the official zoning map, the following rules shall apply:
   (A)   Boundaries indicated as approximately following the centerlines of streets, highways or alleys shall be construed to follow the centerlines;
   (B)   Boundaries indicated as approximately following platted lot lines shall be construed as following the lot lines;
   (C)   Boundaries indicated as approximately following town limits shall be construed as following town limits;
   (D)   Boundaries indicated as following shorelines shall be construed to follow the high water mark and in the event of change in the shoreline shall be construed as moving within the high water mark; boundaries indicated as approximately following the centerlines of streams, rivers, canals, lakes or other bodies of water shall be construed to follow the centerlines;
   (E)   Boundaries indicated as parallel to or extensions of features indicated in divisions (A) through (D) above of this section shall be so construed. Distance not specifically indicated on the official zoning map shall be determined by the use of the scale shown on the zoning map;
   (F)   In cases where the actual location of physical features varies from those shown on the official zoning map or in other circumstances not covered by divisions (A) through (E) above, the Town Council shall interpret the district boundaries;
   (G)   Where a district boundary divides a lot that was in single ownership on July 14, 1975, the Town Council may permit, as a special exception, the extension of the regulations for either portion of the lot not to exceed 50 feet beyond the district line into the remaining portion of the lot;
   (H)   All areas within the corporate limits of the town that are under water and are not shown as included within any district shall be subject to all of the regulations of the district that immediately adjoins the water area. If the water area joins two or more districts, the boundaries of each district shall be construed to extend into the water area in a straight line until they meet the other district; and
   (I)   Boundaries indicated as following railroad lines shall be construed to be midway between the main tracks.
