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

B.    Boundaries indicated as approximately following the boundaries of a parcel or lot shall be construed as following such boundaries;

C.    Boundaries indicated as approximately following a City boundary, or the Urban Growth Boundary, shall be construed as following said boundary;

D.    Boundaries indicated as approximately following drainage channels or basins shall be construed as following drainage channels or basins; and

E.    Whenever any public right-of-way is lawfully vacated, the lands formerly within the vacated right-of- way shall automatically be subject to the same zoning district designation that is applicable to lands abutting the vacated area. In cases where the right-of-way formerly served as a zoning district boundary, the lands formerly within the vacated right-of-way shall be allocated proportionately between the subject zoning districts.
