CHAPTER 21. SUBDIVISIONS.
Article 11. Dedication and Improvement Regulations.
Sec. 21-11-26. Certificate for dedications.
(a) When property is dedicated to the city in fee for public purposes, or
for making public improvements or constructing public facilities, other than for
open space, parks, or schools, the city shall record a certificate with the
county recorder. The certificate shall be attached to the map and shall contain
all of the information specified in Section 66477.5 of the Subdivision Map
(b) The subdivider may request that the city make the determination
that the same public purpose for which the dedication was required still exists,
after payment of a fee that shall not exceed the amount required to make that
determination. If the city determines that the same public purpose for which the
dedication was required does not exist, it shall reconvey the property to the
subdivider or the successor in interest, except for all or any portion of the
property that is required for that same public purpose or for public utilities.
If the city decides to vacate, lease, sell or otherwise dispose of the dedicated
property, the city shall give at least sixty days’ notice to the
subdivider whose name appears on the certificate before vacating, leasing,
selling or otherwise disposing of the dedicated property. This notice is not
required if the dedicated property will be used for the same public purpose for
which it was dedicated. (Ord. No. 1500, § 3 (part).)
