The City Council does hereby find, determine and declare as follows:
   .010   In 1975, the Legislature of the State of California amended the Subdivision Map Act (Section 66410 et seq. of the California Government Code) so as to enable cities and counties to require either the dedication of land, the payment of fees or a combination of both, for park and recreational purposes as a condition of approval of a tract map; and
   .020   Before a city may avail itself of this Act, it must have a general plan containing a recreational element with definite principles and standards for the park and recreational facilities to serve the residents of the city; and
   .030   The City Council has adopted a general plan containing such recreational element. (Ord. 3474 § 2 (part); October 21, 1975.)
