Description:
Abstract:
Development Tiers are established by the Durham Comprehensive Plan to guide the growth and development in distinctive parts of the Durham community. The Plan promote new development and redevelopment that are appropriate to each tier by establishing policies and development regulations that recognize their unique character.
Purpose:
This data was created to assist governmental agencies, property owners, citizens and others in understanding the geographic implications of the Development Tiers and other policies of the Durham Comprehensive Plan.
Supplemental_Information:
Development Tiers established by Policy 2.1.1a of the Durham Comprehensive Plan: Rural, Suburban, Urban, Compact Neighborhood, and Downtown. The Development Tiers were adopted by the City Council and the County Board of Commissioners on February 28, 2006 and may be amended by the governing boards from time to time.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The Zoning data was digitized from the official 400' scale mylar maps maintained by the City of Durham staff. As the data was digitized, hardcopy plots were quality control checked by the City Zoning staff and corrections made.
Logical_Consistency_Report: ESRI feature type: Simple, Geometry: Polygon, Topology:
Completeness_Report:
The precise location of a district boundary line is to be determined as follows: (a) Where a boundary line is shown as binding along or superimposed upon a lot line, such lot line shall be deemed to be a boundary line. (b) Where the location of a boundary line is indicated by a designated number of feet, that distance shall control. (c) Where a boundary line is shown as within or binding along a street, alley, or stream, such boundary line shall be deemed to be in the center of such street, alley or stream, except in the cases where the side of such street, alley or stream is designated as the boundary line. (d) Where a boundary line is shown as binding along a railroad track, or as being located a designated number of feet from a railroad track, or where the location of a boundary line may be scaled from a railroad track, the nearest rail of the track designated shall control. (e) Where a boundary line is superimposed on a topographic elevation line, the precise location of the boundary line shall be determined by the field survey of the topographic elevation line, unless the topographic elevation has been relocated through grading subsequent to establishment of the zoning boundary line. (f) Where a boundary line is shown and its location is not fixed by any of the rules in (a),(b),(c),(d), or (e) of this section, its precise location shall be determined by scaling from fixtures, objects or other features shown on the maps.

Process_Description:
The Planning Department's official 400 scale zoning mylar maps are divided into map sheets based on the 1990 Tax Map Grid which was the predecessor to the current Parcel Identification Number Grid. The data from a selected map sheet was digitized into the GIS. Weekly, completed map sheets were plotted and submitted to the City's Zoning staff for review and correction. If revisions were necessary, the revisions were made and the map sheet was plotted for additional review. Also, during this time, any rezoning case approval information was entered into the GIS. This procedure continued until all the zoning mylar information and approval information was entered into the GIS. Before the digital data became official in May 15, 2000, two complete sets of the data were reviewed by the Zoning staff and any corrections made.
