Section 29-4 District map adopted.
Prior to the adoption of Ord. 20181 on 02/02/2009, Section 29-4 read as follows.
(a) The boundaries of the districts as enumerated in section 29-3 of this chapter
established and adopted as shown on the map which is hereby designated as the "Zoning District
Map," and which map and all the notations, references and information shown thereon are hereby
made as much a part of this chapter as if the same were set forth in full herein. It shall be the duty
of the director of public works to keep on file in his office an authentic copy of such district map,
and duplicate copies thereof, showing all the changes, amendments or additions thereto. When
definite distances in feet are not shown on the zoning district map, the district boundaries on the
zoning district map are intended to be along the existing street, alley or plotted lines, or extension
of the same, and if the exact location of such line is not clear, it shall be determined by the
director of public works, due consideration being given to location as indicated by the scale of
the zoning district map.
(b) When streets or alleys on the ground differ from the streets or alleys as
shown on the
zoning district map, the director of public works may apply the district designations on the map
to the streets or alleys on the ground in such manner as to conform to the intent and purpose of
(c) Whenever any street or alley is vacated, the particular district in which
property lies shall be automatically extended to the centerline of any such street or alley.
(d) Except as provided in subsection (f), all territory which may hereafter
be annexed to the
city shall automatically be placed in zoning district R-1 for a period of not more than six (6)
(e) During the six-month period referred to in (d) herein, the commission shall
recommend permanent zoning to the council in the manner prescribed by law, within three (3)
months, and the council shall act on the recommendations in the normal manner in the remaining
three (3) months, causing permanent zoning districts to be created and having the zoning district
map changed to incorporate the permanent district lines.
(f) A petitioner for annexation may request that the petitioner's property in
the area proposed
to be annexed be placed in one or more specified zoning districts upon annexation. Except as
modified by this section, the procedures set forth in section 29-34(a) and (c) shall apply to such
zoning requests. When a request for zoning has been made under this subsection,
ordinance annexing the area shall not be passed until after the council hearing on the zoning
request. The annexation ordinance shall establish the appropriate land use designation for the
area to be annexed and shall place the area in one or more zoning districts. If the proposed
annexation ordinance would place any property in the area to be annexed in a district other than
that requested, the petition for annexation may be withdrawn at any time before passage of the
(Code 1964, § 19.130; Ord. No. 9958, § 1, 10-3-83; Ord. No. 14234, § 1, 10-10-94)
