(1) Whenever the abbreviated terms, such as OB, RSH-L, or GB, are used in this code, they shall be construed as referring to their corresponding district titles.
(2) The above classification of districts shall not be construed as enumerated of most restrictive to least restrictive districts except for the specific purposes set forth in this code.
(B) Scope of regulations. Any building or parcel of land may be used, and the use of any building or any parcel of land shall only be changed or extended, and any existing building shall only be altered, converted, enlarged, reconstructed, moved, or maintained, only for the uses specifically enumerated or referred to as permitted, or required, in the district in which the building or parcel of land is located and for no other use. The enumeration of uses within a district shall not be construed as a ranking of the most desirable to less desirable uses.
(C) Map and notations incorporated. The boundaries of the districts are shown upon the zoning map of the City of Springdale which was adopted by ordinance (and as may be amended from time to time), which is hereby incorporated as if fully set forth herein. The map is made a part of this zoning code and all notations, references, and other information shown thereon are a part of this zoning code and have the same force and effect as if the zoning map and all notations, references, and other information shown thereon were fully set forth and described herein.
(D) Zoning vacated properties. Whenever any street, alley, or other public way is vacated by official action of City Council, the zoning of the district adjoining each side of such street, alley, or other public way shall be automatically extended to the center of such vacation, and all area included in the vacation shall henceforth be subject to all appropriate regulations of the extended districts.
(E) Zoning annexed territories. All territory which may hereafter be annexed to the municipality shall be rezoned to the zoning district most similar to the previous zoning of the territory.
(F) Rules for uncertain boundaries. The district boundary lines of the zoning map enclose an area of a designated district, and generally follow recorded lot lines, the center line of streets, railroad rights-of-way or their extensions, or fixed points. However:
(1) Where the district boundary line is shown by dimension or relationship as being located a specific distance from or parallel to a street line, such distance shall control; or
(2) Where a district boundary line is shown as adjoining a railroad, it shall, unless otherwise fixed, be construed to coincide with the nearest boundary line of the railroad right-of-way; or
(3) Where a district boundary line does not coincide with any of the aforesaid lines and where it is not located by dimensions or fixed points shown on the map, the Planning Commission shall determine the exact location by use of an engineer's scale as measured on the zoning map.
(G) Relationship of overlay districts.
(1) Where land is classified into an overlay zoning district as well as an underlying base zoning district, the regulations governing development in the overlay zoning district shall apply in addition to the regulations governing the underlying base district.
(2) In the event of an express conflict between the standards of the overlay zoning district and the underlying base zoning district, the standards governing the overlay district shall control.
(3) In some instances, land may be classified into multiple overlay districts. In the event of an express conflict between the standards of the multiple overlay districts, the most restrictive standards shall apply.
