§ 345-9 Interpretation of district boundaries.

A. 
The district boundary lines are intended generally to follow the center lines of rights-of-way; existing lot lines; the mean water level of rivers, streams and other waterways; or Town boundary lines, all as shown on the Zoning Map, but where a district boundary line does not follow such a line, its position is shown on said Zoning Map by a specific dimension expressing its distance in feet from a street line or other boundary line as indicated.
B. 
Where a district boundary line divides a lot in single or joint ownership of record at the time such line is established, the rear lot line of that lot shall be considered the district boundary if the district, extending from the front lot line, occupies more than 60% of the lot area. In all other cases, the lots shall remain in two or more districts.
