   1121.04 INTERPRETATION OF DISTRICT BOUNDARIES.
   Where uncertainty exists with respect to the boundaries of any of the aforesaid districts as shown on the Zoning Districts Map, the following rules shall apply:
   (a)    Where Boundaries Approximately Follow Streets, Alleys or Highways. Where district boundaries are indicated as approximately following the center line or right-of-way lines of streets, the center line or alley line of alleys, or the center line or right-of-way lines of highways, such lines shall be construed to be such district boundaries.
   (b)    Where Boundaries Parallel Street Right-of-Way Lines, Alley Lines, or Highway Right-of-Way Lines. Where district boundaries are so indicated that they are approximately parallel to the center lines or right-of-way lines of streets, the center lines or alley lines of alleys, or the centerlines or right-of-way lines of highways, such district boundaries shall be construed as being parallel thereto and at such distance therefrom as indicated on the Map. If no distance is given, such dimensions shall be determined by the use of the scale shown on the Zoning Map.
   (c)    Where Boundaries Approximately Follow Lot Lines. Where district boundaries are indicated as approximately following lot lines, such lot lines shall be construed to be such boundaries.
   (d)    Where Boundaries Do Not Follow or Parallel Street, Alley, Highway or Lot Lines. Where district boundaries are so indicated that they do not follow or parallel street, alley, highway, or lot lines, but do connect points established by the intersection of such lines, such straight lines connecting such points shall be construed to be the district boundaries. Where district boundaries are so indicated that they follow topographical features, such lines shall be construed as following the center line of such features. The location of such topographical features shall be determined by use of the scale shown on the Zoning Map.
   (e)    Where Boundaries Follow USGS Contours. Where district boundaries are indicated by the land below the USGS contour elevation such as the Flood Plain Area the pool elevation at the original lot line shall be designated on the zoning map. For the specific location falling between the original lot lines the local pool elevation shall be calculated using the straight line interpolation method.
   (f)    Vacation of Public Ways. Whenever any street, alley or public way is vacated in the manner authorized by law the zoning districts adjoining each side of the street, alley or public way shall be automatically extended to the center of such vacations and all areas included in the vacation shall then and henceforth be subject to all regulations of the extended districts.
(Ord. 1985-5. Passed 1-28-85.)
