Application of regulations. The zoning regulations in this article are intended to be uniform throughout each zoning district for each class or kind of buildings or other structures or uses of land. In case of conflicting regulations in this article, determination of the applicable regulation shall lie with the Zoning Board of Adjustment.
A. 
Zoning Map. The Zoning Map of the Town of Westfield, as prepared by Robert Catlin and Associates and dated July 1998, is hereby declared to be a part of this Ordinance.
[Amended 7-1-2003 by Ord. No. 2086; 7-1-2003 by Ord. No. 2087; 6-6-2006 by Ord. No. 1867, 8-4-2009 by Ord. No. 1939, 3-7-2014 by Ord. No. 2002, 3-7-2014 by Ord. No. 2003, 3-7-2014 by Ord. No. 2004, 12-16-2014 by Ord. No. 2032, 11-10-2015 by Ord. No. 2054]
B. 
Zone district boundary lines. The zone district boundary lines shown on the Zoning Map are intended to follow property lines existing at the date of the adoption of the map, the center line of street right-of-ways, the center line of railroad tracks and municipal boundary lines, as applicable. In case of uncertainty or disagreement as to the precise location of any zone district boundary line, the determination thereof shall lie with the Zoning Board of Adjustment. In the case of a lot that is split by a zone district boundary line, and the zone districts on the lot have different requirements, application of the requirements shall be as follows, unless the provisions of this chapter specifically indicate otherwise:
[Amended 8-3-2004 by Ord. No. 1839]
1. 
The use shall comply with the required use standards for the zone district within which the use is located.
2. 
The lot shall be required to comply with the most restrictive of the minimum lot area, minimum lot width, minimum average lot width, minimum lot frontage, and minimum lot depth standards of the various zone districts on the lot.
3. 
The yard setbacks shall be required to comply with the required dimensions for such setbacks of the zone district within which the yard is located; thus, each portion of a building that is split by a zone boundary would be subject to the setback standards of the zone within which that portion of the building is located. In the event that it is not possible to measure the yard depth without crossing a zone district boundary, the most restrictive setback standard of the various zones shall apply, but only to those locations where the measurement would cross the zone boundary.
4. 
The height of structures shall comply with the height requirements for the zone district within which such structures are located. In the case of a structure that is split by a zone district boundary, the most restrictive height standard shall apply.
5. 
The number of parking spaces required based upon floor area shall comply with the standard applicable to the zone within which the building is located. In the case of a building that is split by a zone boundary, the parking standard in each zone shall apply to that portion of the building floor area located in such zone.
6. 
The coverage by above-grade structures, the coverage by improvements, floor area ratio and density shall be required to comply with the standard for the zone in which the structures and improvements are located, calculated using the entire lot area. In the case of a building or buildings or improvements located partially in more than one zone district, a pro rata standard shall apply to the entire lot, using the following formula:
a. 
Calculate that percentage of the total coverage, floor area or number of dwelling units on the lot, as applicable, proposed in each zone.
b. 
Multiply the percentages resulting from the calculation in [1] above for each zone times the applicable standard for coverage, floor area ratio or density, of the same zone.
c. 
Add the results from the calculations in [2] above to determine the applicable standard.
As an example, consider a development located on a lot split by a zone boundary. Zone A permits 25% improvement coverage and zone B permits 20% coverage. The development proposes 3,000 square feet of coverage in zone A and 2,000 square feet of coverage in zone B, for a total of 5,000 square feet of coverage. The permitted coverage for the above-grade structures would be 23% of the total lot area, calculated as follows:
3,000 square feet coverage proposed in zone A ÷ 5,000 square feet total proposed coverage = 60% of total coverage proposed in zone A. 2,000 square feet coverage proposed in zone B ÷ 5,000 square feet total proposed coverage = 40% of total coverage proposed in zone B.
60% of total coverage proposed in zone A x 25% coverage permitted in zone A = 15%. 40% of total coverage proposed in zone B x 20% coverage permitted in zone B = 8%.
15% + 8% = 23% of total lot area permitted to be covered by improvements.
One can see by the above example that if 100% of the coverage were proposed on that portion of the lot in Zone A, then 25% coverage would be permitted, whereas if 100% of the coverage were proposed on that portion of the lot in Zone B, then 20% coverage would be permitted. Any other situation would result in a permitted coverage somewhere between 20% and 25%.
C. 
Schedule of requirements. The schedule entitled "SUMMARY OF ZONING STANDARDS" is hereby declared to be a part of this ordinance. The schedule is a generalized summary of the use, bulk, lot, density and intensity regulations established for each zone district. The regulations established for each zone district in the text of this ordinance provide greater detail than the schedule and take precedence over the standards in the schedule. The schedule is not intended to present a comprehensive list of all applicable zoning regulations.
