2006 Louisiana Laws - RS 8:302 — Surveys and maps

§302.  Surveys and maps

A.  Every cemetery authority from time to time as its property is developed for cemetery purposes shall, in the case of land, survey and subdivide it into sections, blocks, plots, avenues, walks, or other subdivisions, and make a good and substantial map or plat showing the sections, plots, avenues, walks or other subdivisions, with descriptive names or numbers.  In the case of a mausoleum or a columbarium, it shall make a good and substantial map or plat on which shall be delineated the sections, halls, rooms, corridors, elevations and other divisions, with descriptive names or numbers.

B.  The preparation and use of any survey, map or plat hereinabove contemplated shall not constitute the dedication of the property depicted thereon solely for cemetery purposes, until and unless such property is actually used for said purposes.  Accordingly, each such survey, map or plat may include undeveloped areas which may be marked "reserved for future development" and, when so marked, said areas, when subsequently developed and used for cemetery purposes shall be considered dedicated for such purposes, but if such areas are not to be used for cemetery purposes, the cemetery authority shall have the right to use such areas for any other lawful purposes.

C.  Copies of such surveys, maps or plats shall be available for inspection by any interested party at the office of the cemetery authority.

D.  Cemetery authorities organized after January 1, 1981, shall file the survey, map, or plat provided for in Subsection A of this Section with the board.  Each cemetery authority shall file with the board a copy of any such survey, map, or plat affecting property acquired, developed, or used for cemetery purposes after January 1, 1981.

Acts 1974, No. 417, §1.  Amended by Acts 1980, No. 428, §1.
