That Chapter 80, Code of Ordinances of the City of Kansas City, Missouri, is hereby amended by repealing Section 80-206, Procedure to establish District GP and individual development within the district, and enacting in lieu thereof a new section of like number and subject matter, to read as follows:

district

 

(a) Amendment to zoning district map.

 

(1) A district GP shall be established through an amendment to the zoning district map, in the same manner as provided for any amendment to this chapter and the boundary thereof shall be identified by dashed lines, as distinguished from the solid lines of other zoning district boundaries. Where the boundary of a district GP coincides with the boundary of other zoning districts, it shall be shown adjacent and parallel to said zoning boundary but shall be construed as being the same location unless otherwise indicated on the zoning map.

 

(2) Each district GP shall be labeled within its boundaries on any zoning district map by a name or number, which shall identify the particular district GP with corresponding name or number in the margin of the zoning district map and which in turn identifies the ordinance establishing that particular district GP and its date of passage.

 

(3) Upon the establishment, by ordinance, of a district GP, all zoning districts which were in effect at the time of establishment shall be reclassified into GP control zones. No land or structure within the boundary of a district GP shall be used for any purpose other than a lawful use established before the district GP was established, unless a specific plan of development, conforming to the general development and land use plan of the district GP has been submitted and approved by ordinance. Any land within a district GP on the date of its establishment which has an approved zoning development plan or plat, shall be deemed to meet the requirement of a specific development plan as required by this section.
