Boundaries of Zoning Districts

Where a Zoning District Boundary Approximately Follows The Centerline of a Street or Alley: The centerline of such street or alley shall be interpreted to be the Zoning District Boundary.

Where a Zoning District Boundary Approximately Parallels a Street Lot Line or Alley Lot Line: The boundary shall be interpreted as being parallel to it and at such distance from it as indicated on the Zoning Map. If no distance is given, such dimension shall be determined by the use of the scale shown on the official Zoning Map.

Where a Zoning District Boundary Approximately follows a Lot Line:  The lot line shall be interpreted to be the Zoning District Boundary

Where a Zoning District Boundary Follows a Body of Water: The boundary shall be interpreted to be the centerline of a river, creek, stream, or as dimensioned on the Zoning Map.

Submerged Areas: In all areas within the Town which are under water and are bounded by two or more Zoning Districts, the boundary lines of these districts shall be extended to the center of the body of water.

Classification of Annexed or Unzoned Lands: For zoning purposes, all    areas which are discovered to be unzoned due to administrative oversight or a change in municipal boundaries shall be classified as “RA” Rural until such time as the Ordinance and Map are officially amended to include the excluded areas and classify them in accordance with the Town’s Master Plan

Vacating of Public Ways: Whenever any street or alley is vacated, the Zoning District or Districts adjoining such street or alley shall be automatically extended to the center of such vacated area.

Boundary Determination Problems: Where it is not possible or practical for the Board of Selectmen to determine the location of a Zoning District Boundary line, or if a petitioner contests the Board’s determination of the boundary, the Zoning Board of Adjustment, upon appeal, shall determine and establish the location of said boundary line.

All distances pertaining to the delineation of Zoning Districts as shown on the Zoning Map shall be measured from the existing road right-of-way line when such distance is measured from a public road.

Lots in Two Zoning Districts: When a Zoning District Boundary divides a parcel or lot held in single or separate ownership, the regulation as to the use in the less restrictive district shall extend over the portion of the lot in the more restrictive district a distance of not more than fifty (50) feet beyond the district boundary line.

Uses by Districts: Permitted uses and uses permitted by Special Exception in the respective Zoning Districts are shown in Appendix A.
