620 Interpretation of District Boundaries 

Boundaries of districts established under provisions of this Ordinance are shown on the two City Zoning Maps on file in the office of the City Clerk, Hartford, Kentucky and the Office of the City Clerk, Beaver Dam, Kentucky. 

Boundaries of districts shown on the City Zoning Maps shall be interpreted as follows: 

    a. Boundaries indicated as approximately following the center lines of streets, highways, alleys or railroad tracks shall be construed to follow such lines. 

    b. Boundaries indicated as approximately following plotted lot lines shall be construed as following such lot lines. 

    c. Boundaries indicated as approximately following city corporation limits shall be construed as following such corporation line. 

    d. Boundaries indicated as approximately following the center lines of streams, rivers or other bodies of water shall be construed to follow such center lines. 

    e. Boundaries indicated as parallel to or extensions of features indicated in 620 (a) through 620(d) , above, shall be so construed. Distances shall be determined by the scale of the City Zoning Maps unless specifically shown on the map. 

    f. All questions not covered by 620(a) through 620(e) concerning the exact location of any district boundary line or portion thereof, shall be determined by the Board of Adjustment. 

Where a district boundary line on the City Zoning Map divides a lot of single ownership which was recorded at the time of enactment of this Ordinance, the Board of Adjustment may permit the extension of the regulations for either portion of the lot a distance not to exceed 50 feet into the remaining portion of the lot. 

Whenever any street, alley, public way, or public easement is vacated through legal action, the abutting districts shall be extended, depending on the land to which the vacated lands revert. 

630 Annexation 

In every case when land becomes a part of the cities through annexation, such annexed land shall be automatically assigned to the R-1 Zoning District.
