Section 175-130 NONCONFORMING STRUCTURES OR BUILDINGS.
Structures or buildings which, at the effective date of this chapter or subsequent amendments thereto, become nonconforming by reason of restrictions on lot coverage, height, yards, its location on the lot or other requirements concerning the building or structure may be continued to be used so long as such structure or building remains otherwise lawful, subject to the following provisions:
A. Enlargement. A nonconforming structure shall not be enlarged in a manner which increases the nonconformity. Such nonconforming structure may be enlarged in a manner which does not create a new nonconformity.
B. Damage or destruction. A nonconforming structure or building which is destroyed or partially destroyed by any means to an extent of seventy-five percent (75%) or more of the market value thereof immediately prior to such damage or destruction shall not be repaired or restored to a nonconforming status, but shall be reconstructed and used only in conformity with the provisions of this chapter. If such structure is more than seventy-five-percent destroyed, reconstruction to its prior state may occur if begun within twelve (12) months of said damage or destruction. A special permit from the Town Council is needed for reconstruction during this twelve-month period.
C. Moving of structure or building. No nonconforming structure or building shall be, for any reason, moved for any distance unless it shall thereafter conform to the zoning district regulations for the district in which it is located after it is moved.
