A.  When a map line does not match the legal description or map referenced in the ordinance or approved land use decision that applied the designation;  or

B.  When there is a discrepancy between maps and there is clear legislative intent for where the line should be located; or

C.  When the Open Space zone has been applied to property in private ownership that is not in an open space use, or is not receiving special tax considerations because of its status as open space.

Comprehensive Plan and Zoning map corrections initiated under this Section must be clear and objective.  Discretionary map corrections must be processed under the procedures set forth in Sections 33.810.080 and 33.855.070.
