(A) Overlay districts.
(1) Establishment. Overlay zoning districts may be established, amended or removed only in accordance with the zoning map amendment procedures of § 155-16.30.
(2) Interpretation. Overlay zoning district regulations apply in combination with underlying (base) zoning district regulations and all other applicable standards of this zoning ordinance. All applicable regulations of the underlying base zoning district apply to property in an overlay zoning district unless otherwise expressly stated. When overlay district standards conflict with standards that otherwise apply in the underlying, base zoning district, the regulations of the overlay zoning district govern.
(B) Special purpose districts. Like overlay zoning districts, special purpose zoning districts are tools for dealing with special situations or accomplishing special planning and zoning goals. Unlike overlay districts, special purpose districts are base zoning classifications; they do not "over-lay" other base zoning districts.
