5.020.  Zoning Map.  The location and boundaries of the zoning districts established by this Resolution are bounded and defined as shown on the map entitled Zoning Map of Loudon County, Tennessee.  The zoning map or any amendment thereto shall be dated with the effective date of the resolution that adopts same.  Certified prints of the adopted zoning map or zoning map amendment shall be maintained in the office of the Loudon County Building Commissioner and shall be available for inspection by the public at all reasonable times, as long as this Resolution remains in effect.

5.030.  Zoning District Boundaries.  Unless otherwise indicated on the zoning map or zoning map amendment, the district boundaries are lot lines, center lines of streets or alleys, or the Loudon County boundary lines as they exist at the time of the enactment of the Zoning Resolution.  Questions concerning the exact locations of district boundaries shall be determined by the Loudon County Board of Zoning Appeals. 

Where a district boundary line divides a lot existing at the time this Resolution takes effect and the major portion of said lot is in the less restricted district, the regulations relative to that district may extend as well to such portion of said lot as is not more than twenty (20) feet within the more restricted district.

Where the property on one side of a street between two intersecting streets is in a business or industrial district and the property on the intersecting street, except the corner or corners, is in a residential district, the business or industrial use shall be limited to the property facing or fronting the street zoned for business or industry throughout the block and any property in the rear thereof facing or fronting the intersecting street, even though it appears to be in a business or industrial district, shall be governed by the use prevailing on the intersecting street.  It is the purpose of this Resolution to limit business and industrial uses to the property facing or fronting the street zoned for business or industry and to prohibit business or industrial uses facing or fronting the street zoned for residential uses.  In all cases of ambiguity due to the actual layout of the property or other circumstances, the Board of Zoning Appeals shall have authority to determine on which street the business or industrial use shall face or front so that the intent of the resolution shall be observed.

Utility and mechanical equipment including water supply and sewage system shall be so designed as to be floodproofed, flood resistant or elevated to prevent water from entering into components and avoiding discharge of any such substance into the watercourse.  On-site waste disposal systems shall be located and constructed to avoid impairment to them or contamination during flooding.

c. All structures constructed shall feature methods and practices that will minimize flood damage. 

d. A building permit shall be required prior to the start of construction for any development permitted.  For all new and substantially improved structures, the building official shall obtain and maintain on file a certificate of elevation indicating the elevation of the lowest structural member of the lowest floor or the floodproofed elevation of any horizontal structural member of the lowest floor. 

e. Prior to the issuance of a permit, the applicant shall obtain the necessary state and federal permits and shall show evidence of same to the building official. 

f. When base flood elevation data or floodway data have not been provided in accordance with this article, then the Building Commissioner shall obtain, review and reasonably utilize any base flood elevation and floodway data available from a federal, state or other source, in order to administer the provisions of this article. 

g. A registered engineer or architect shall certify that all floodproofing measures for nonresidential structures comply with acceptable design and construction methods meeting the NFIP criteria. 

h. New construction or substantial improvements of elevated buildings that include fully enclosed areas formed by foundation and other exterior walls below the base flood elevation shall be designed to preclude finished living space and designed to allow for the entry and exit of floodwaters to automatically equalize hydrostatic flood forces on exterior walls. 

i. Designs for complying with this requirement must either be certified by a professional engineer or architect or meet the following minimum criteria: 

- Provide a minimum of two openings having a total net area of not less than one square inch for every square foot of enclosed area subject to flooding.

C.     Definition of Terms 

          The following terms found within the F-1, Floodway District, regulation shall have the following definitions: 

          BASE FLOOD means the flood having a one (1) percent change of being equaled or exceeded in any given year as determined by NFIP. 

          BREAKAWAY WALL means a wall that is not part of the structural support of the building and is intended through its design and construction to collapse under specific lateral loading forces without causing damage to the elevated portion of the building or the supporting foundation system. 

          DEVELOPMENT means any man-made change to improved or unimproved real estate, including but not limited to the construction of buildings or other structures, mining, dredging, filling, grading, paving excavation, or drilling operations. 

          ELEVATED BUILDING means A non-basement building built to have the lowest floor elevated above the ground level by means of fill, solid foundation perimeter walls, pilings, columns (posts and piers), shear walls, or breakaway walls. 

          FLOODWAY Means the channel of a river or other watercourse and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than one foot. 

          FLOODWAY FRINGE means the land area outside the floodway but within the area covered by the 100‑year flood as determined by the NFIP. 

          Manufactured home means a structure transportable in one or more sections, which is built on a permanent chassis to be used with or without a permanent foundation when connected to the required utilities.  The term also includes park trailers, travel trailers, and similar transportable structures placed on a site for 180 consecutive days or longer and intended to be improved property. 

          START OF CONSTRUCTION (for other than new construction or substantial improvements under the coastal Barrier Resources Act (PL 97-348), includes substantial improvement and means the date the building permit was issued, provided the actual start of construction, repair, reconstruction, or improvement was within 180 days of the permit data.  The actual start means the first placement of permanent construction of a structure (including a manufactured home) on a site, such as the pouring of slabs or footings, installation of piles, construction of columns, or any work beyond the state of excavation or the placement of a manufactured home on a foundation.  Permanent construction does not include land preparation, such as clearing, grading and filling; nor does it include excavation for a basement, footings, piers or foundations or the erection of temporary forms; nor does it include the installation on the property of accessory buildings, such as garages or sheds not occupied as dwellings units or not part of the main structure. 

          SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT means any combination of repairs, reconstruction, alteration, or improvements to a structure, taking place during the life of a structure, in which the cumulative cost equals or exceeds fifty (50) percent of the market value of the structure.  The market value of the structure should be:  1) the appraised value of the structure prior to the start of the initial repair or improvement, or 2) in the case of damage, the value of the structure prior to the damage occurring. 

          For the purpose of this definition, "substantial improvement" is considered to occur when the first alteration of any wall, ceiling, floor, or other structural part of the building commences, whether or not the alteration affects the external dimensions of the structure.  The term does now, however, include any project for improvement of a structure required to comply with existing health, sanitary, or safety code specifications which are solely necessary to assure safe living conditions. 

D.       Uses Permitted within the Floodway 

          There are no permitted uses within the floodway, other than agricultural and pasture or as provided as "special exception."

8.  The granting of approval of a structure or use shall not constitute a representation, guarantee or warranty of any kind of nature by Loudon County, Tennessee, or the Loudon County Board of Zoning Appeals or by an officer or employee of either thereof of the practicality or safety of any structure of use proposed and shall create no liability upon or cause action against such public body, officer, or employee for any damage that may result thereto. 

F.        Uses Prohibited in the Floodway 

          Within the floodway, the filling of land, encroachment and new construction and/or substantial improvements to existing structures which would result in an increase of flood heights during the recurrence of the 100-year flood discharge are prohibited.  Also prohibited are structures for human habitation (including manufactured homes) and the storage of inflammable materials. 

G.     Floodway Fringe Areas 

          Areas lying outside the floodway but within the area covered by the 100-year flood shall be subject to the following regulations. 

1.  No building or structure shall be erected, and no existing building or structure shall be extended or moved unless the lowest floor of said building or structure (including basement) is placed one foot above the elevation of the 100-year flood.  This requirement shall apply to the placement of manufactured homes within a manufactured home park (mobile home park) or subdivision regardless if such park or subdivision was developed prior to the adoption of the floodplain regulations.  Non-residential structures shall be either elevated one foot above the base flood elevation or floodproofed to that elevation.  The lowest floor for non-floodproofed buildings allows for unfinished enclosures provided that they are used solely for parking of vehicles, building access or storage.  Said structures shall be designed to comply with the general requirements as outlined in Section B.
