The official zoning map shall be identified by the signature of the mayor attested by the city clerk and bearing the seal of the city of Omak under the words, “This is to certify that this is the official zoning map of the City of Omak, Washington, adopted as part of Ordinance No. 1286.” (Ord. 1286 (part), 1995).

18.10.030 Zoning map amendment.

If amendments as authorized by Chapter 18.52 are made in the use district boundaries or other matter portrayed on the official zoning map, such changes shall be mapped, properly identified, and attached to the original official zoning map.

No defacement or changes shall be made to the original official zoning map, and it shall be kept in its original condition. It shall be the responsibility of the city clerk to record and keep safe the original official zoning map together with any amendments subsequently adopted. (Ord. 1286 (part), 1995).

(a)    The boundaries of a use district shall be construed to be on the centerline of streets and alleys, or on lot lines unless otherwise indicated on the official zoning map. Boundaries which are other than street, alley, or lot lines shall be identified in the ordinance setting the limits of the use district or shall be shown by distances in figures on the official zoning map. The planning commission shall issue a ruling in the event the actual location of a boundary is called into question.

(b)    Where a use district boundary divides a parcel of land under a single ownership at the time of passage of the ordinance codified in this title, the least restrictive regulations may be extended to that portion lying in the more restrictive use district for a distance not to exceed fifty feet beyond the use district boundary. (Ord. 1286 (part), 1995).

Private land annexed to the city after the effective date of the ordinance codified in this title shall be given a zoning use district classification that is consistent with the greater Omak comprehensive plan, as it exists now or is hereafter amended. (Ord. 1286 (part), 1995).
