Description:
Abstract:
Urban Growth Area (UGA) data covers the geographic area within the Durham County the City of Durham will provide water and sewer services. The data is current to within 72 hours from the approval of the elected bodies. The UGA data includes polygons and labels representing the boundaries as defined by the Comprehensive Plan provided for by Durham City Code.
Purpose:
This data was created to assist governmental agencies and others in making management decisions through use of a Geographic Information System (GIS).

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
The UGA data was screen digitized from a 1:24000 map maintained by the City of Durham staff. As the data was digitized, hardcopy plots were quality control checked by City staff and corrections made.

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.
