Where uncertainty exists as to the boundaries of districts as shown on the official zoning map, the following rules shall apply:
(A) Center lines of streets. Boundaries indicated as approximately following the center lines of streets, highways, or alleys shall be construed to follow such center lines; and
(B) Platted lot lines. Boundaries indicated as approximately following platted lot lines shall be construed as following such lot lines; and
(C) Town limits. Boundaries indicated as approximately following town limits shall be construed as following such town limits; and
(D) Railroad lines. Boundaries indicated as following railroad lines shall be construed to be midway between the main tracks; and
(E) Conflicts to official zoning map. Where physical or cultural features existing on the ground are at variance with those shown on the official zoning map, or in other circumstances not covered by divisions (A) through (D) above, the Board of Zoning Appeals shall interpret the district boundaries.
(F) Lots divided by district boundaries. Where a district boundary line divides a lot which was in single ownership at the time of passage of this chapter, the Board of Zoning Appeals may permit, as a special exception, the extension of the regulations for either portions of the lot not to exceed 50 feet beyond the district line into the remaining portion of the lot.
