Sec. 21-9-9. Review and approval of parcel and final maps.

(a) The city shall disapprove a map for failure to meet or perform any of the requirements or conditions imposed by the Subdivision Map Act or this chapter which were applicable to the subdivision at the time of approval of the tentative map. Such disapproval shall be accompanied by a finding identifying the requirements or conditions which have not been met or performed. When the failure of the map is the result of a technical and inadvertent error, which, in the determination of the community development director, does not materially affect the validity of the map, the provisions of this subsection may be waived in the discretion of the community development director.
(b) The review and approval of parcel and final maps shall be as stated below:
(1) Parcel Maps. Pursuant to Section 66450 of the Subdivision Map Act and Section 21-9-8, the city engineer shall examine the parcel map. Within twenty days from the time the parcel map is submitted to the city engineer, he or she shall complete the statement required by Section 21-9-8(a) and deliver the completed parcel map to the city clerk to be transmitted to the county recorder for recordation.
(2) Final Maps. Pursuant to Section 66442 of the Subdivision Map Act and Section 21-9-8, the city engineer shall examine the final map. Within twenty days from the time the final map is submitted to the city engineer, he or she shall complete and file the statement required by Section 21-9-8(a) with the city council. After all required certificates or statements on the map have been signed and, where necessary, acknowledged, the final map may be filed with the city council for approval. The city council shall, at the meeting at which it receives the map or, at its next regular meeting thereafter, approve the map if it conforms to all requirements of the Subdivision Map Act and this chapter as applicable at the time of approval or conditional approval of the tentative map. If the map does not conform, the city council shall disapprove the map. After approval by the city council, the map shall be forwarded by the city clerk to the county recorder for recordation. (Ord. No. 1500, § 3 (part).)
