These additional identifiers shall be appended to the specific district of properties designated by ordinance as being Landmarks or within the boundaries of an Historic District as provided for in Title XV, Chapter 162 of the Municipal Code of the City of Quincy.

The district map shall be the final authority as to the current zoning status of lands and buildings, subject to such amendments then in effect. Changes to the districts shall be indicated on the district map promptly after the adoption of such amendments.

Where uncertainty exists as to the boundaries of districts as shown on the district map, the following rules shall apply:

  1. Boundaries are the centerline of highways, expressways, streets or alleys, unless otherwise indicated.

  2. Boundaries are platted tracts on lot lines, unless otherwise indicated.

  3. Boundaries indicated as following railroad lines shall be construed to be midway between the main track.

  4. All territory in the unincorporated area hereafter coming under the zoning jurisdiction of the City of Quincy shall be and the same is hereby classified for zoning purposes as RU1 - Rural, until otherwise reclassified by amendment.

  5. Whenever the Council or other authority vacates a street or alley, adjacent districts shall extend to the centerline of the vacation.
