1105.01 DIVISION INTO SEVEN.

(a) For the purpose of this chapter, the City is divided into seven zoning districts.

(b) Such districts are designated as follows:

(1) Residence Districts.

R-1 - One-Family Residence District

R-2 - One and Two-Family Residence District

R-3 - Multi-Family Residence District

(2) Nonresidence Districts.

B-1 - Neighborhood Business District

B-2 - Downtown Business District

B-3 - General Business District

M - Manufacturing District.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)


1105.02 ESTABLISHED.
The several districts and boundaries thereof are hereby adopted and established as shown on the Zoning Map, which map, together with all notations, references, data, district boundaries and other information shown thereon, are hereby made a part of this Zoning Code. The Zoning Map, properly attested, shall remain on file in the office of the General Administrative Clerk.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)


1105.03 DESIGNATION OF DISTRICT BOUNDARIES.
Except where referenced on the map to a street or alley line or other designated line by dimensions shown on the map, the district boundary lines follow lot lines or the center lines of streets or alleys as they existed at the time of the adoption of the Zoning Code. Where a district line obviously does not coincide with the lot lines or such center lines or where it is not designated by dimensions, it shall be deemed to be 120 feet back from the nearest street line parallel to which it is drawn.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)


1105.04 LOT DIVIDED; EXTENSION OF DISTRICT.
Where a district boundary line established in this chapter or as shown on the Zoning Map divides a lot which was in single ownership at the time of enactment of this Zoning Code, the use authorized thereon and the other district requirements applying to the least restricted portion of such lot under this Zoning Code shall be considered as extending to the entire lot, provided the more restricted portion of such lot is entirely within twenty-five feet of the dividing district boundary line. The use so extended shall be deemed to be conforming.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)


1105.05 DETERMINATION OF UNCERTAIN BOUNDARIES.
All questions concerning the exact location of district boundary lines shall be determined by the Board of Zoning Appeals according to rules and regulations which may be adopted by such Board.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)


1105.06 VACATED STREET OR ALLEY.
Whenever any street, alley or other public way is vacated by official action as provided by law, the zoning district adjoining the side of such public way shall be extended automatically, depending on the side or sides to which such lands revert, to include the right of way thus vacated, which shall thenceforth be subject to all regulations of the extended district or districts.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)


1105.07 ANNEXATIONS.
In every case where property has not been specifically included within a district, the same is hereby declared to be in the R-1 District. Territory annexed or consolidated with the City subsequent to the effective date of this Zoning Code shall, upon the effective date of such annexation or consolidation, become a part of the R-1 District. Such districting shall be temporary and the Planning Commission shall recommend to Council within a period of not more than six months from such date of annexation or consolidation, a final zoning map for the annexed territory.
(Ord. 196. Passed 11-21-63.)
