2005 California Streets and Highways Code Sections 35300-35305 CHAPTER 2.1. USE OF CITY LANDS AS PARKING PLACES
35300. As used in this chapter, the term "city lands" means lands already owned by the city which are located within the boundaries of an existing or proposed district and which are either being used for the purpose of public off-street parking or are not needed by the city for any other purpose and are available for such use. 35301. The legislative body, at any time after the filing of a petition for the formation of such district, may by ordinance declare and agree that city lands shall for all purposes of said district be held, used and treated in all respects the same as parking places acquired with the proceeds of bonds issued under this part. Such ordinance shall not become effective until said district shall have been formed and bonds shall have been issued for such district, as provided in this part. If such ordinance is adopted and becomes effective, such city lands shall be so held, used and treated and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the revenues from the operation of off-street parking facilities thereon may be pledged and used for the same purposes as those for which revenues from parking facilities acquired or improved with proceeds of such bonds may be pledged and used. The ordinance shall describe the city lands to be so held, used and treated and shall state the amount of compensation, if any, to be paid the city therefor and the manner in which said compensation is to be paid. 35302. The petition for the formation of the district under this part may propose that the legislative body shall adopt such an ordinance with respect to any city lands, and may propose improvements to be made or constructed thereon and shall state the amount of compensation, if any, to be paid to the city therefor and the manner in which compensation is to be paid. In the event that the petition proposes that the legislative body adopt such an ordinance with respect to any such city lands, the legislative body either shall reject the petition or, prior to the adoption of the resolution of intention, shall adopt with respect to such city lands the ordinance authorized by this section for the compensation, if any, provided in the petition. Failure of the petition to propose such an ordinance, or to propose such improvements, shall not prevent the legislative body from adopting such an ordinance at any time after the petition shall have been filed. If such ordinance is adopted prior to the adoption of the resolution of intention, whether said ordinance is in response to a proposal made in the petition or otherwise, the resolution of intention, in addition to the other matters required by the part, shall refer to the ordinance, shall contain a general description of such city lands and a general description of the improvements, if any, proposed to be made or constructed thereon, and shall state the amount and manner of payment of any compensation provided for in said ordinance. 35303. If such ordinance is adopted after the hearing on the resolution of intention, said ordinance shall be adopted in the manner provided in this section. If no compensation is to be paid to the city for such city lands, the legislative body at any time, without further notice and hearing, may adopt such an ordinance. If a proposed ordinance provides for compensation to be paid to the city for such city lands, before adopting such proposed ordinance the legislative body shall adopt a resolution proposing the adoption of said ordinance. Said resolution shall describe the city lands to be covered by the proposed ordinance, shall specify the amount and manner of payment of the compensation to be paid the city, and shall fix a time and place for hearing objections to the adoption of said proposed ordinance. The resolution shall be published twice in a newspaper of general circulation printed and published in the city. The first publication shall be at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of the hearing. In cities where no such newspaper is published, the resolution shall be posted in three public places in the proposed district at least thirty (30) days prior to the date of hearing. At said hearing the legislative body shall hear and pass upon all objections and protests against the adoption of the proposed ordinance, and the decisions of the legislative body thereon shall be final and conclusive. If all protests and objections have been overruled and denied, the legislative body may adopt said ordinance. 35304. Compensation to be paid the city for said city lands shall be paid only from contributions which may be made to the city for that purpose or from revenues theretofore or thereafter derived from said city lands or other lands acquired for the district as parking places. The right of the city to compensation from said revenues may be made subordinate to the rights of the holders of any bonds thereafter to be issued by the city under this part for the district; provided, however, that if at the time of adoption of the ordinance there are outstanding bonds issued by the city under this part for the district, the right of the city to compensation from said revenues shall be subordinate to any rights of the holders of such bonds to such revenues. 35305. Whenever an ordinance is adopted pursuant to this section, whether in response to a proposal made in the petition or otherwise, the legislative body may, at the hearing on the resolution of intention or subsequent thereto, increase, decrease, eliminate, change or otherwise modify the lands to be so held, used and treated, the improvements to be made or constructed thereon, or the compensation to be paid the city for said city lands, in the same manner and by the same procedure as provided in this part for increasing, decreasing, changing or otherwise modifying the acquisitions and improvements to be made, and in that event the legislative body shall adopt a new ordinance pursuant to this chapter consistent with such changes and repealing the prior ordinance or shall amend the prior ordinance. No such increase, decrease, elimination, change or other modification shall be made in violation of the provisions of any ordinance, resolution or indenture providing for bonds already issued.
