Sub-Districts of the F.M. 156 Corridor Overlay District (see [Illustration 1 {located at the end of 11 [260.3]}), as well as the possible future centerline (if F.M. 156 is re-aligned in the north portion of the City). The C-156 District excludes all single-family subdivisions platted prior to the effective date of this Section [ordinance adopted September 6, 2005]. Some lots or tracts may be fully or partially located in the C-156 District.
