(A)   The Council finds that certain lots and parcels of land within the city are inadequate for development and to render adequate for development may require substantial alterations and improvements. With the rapid shift of land use from agricultural to more intense usage, there is often inadequate knowledge and notice of conditions which render lots and parcels less desirable for development.
   (B)   It is the purpose of this chapter to provide for orderly, economic and safe development of land and public services within the city and promote the public health, safety and welfare by providing adequate notice to potential buyers of problems that may exist relative to the condition of the lot or parcel being purchased which affects its capability for development.
   (C)   By enacting this chapter, the city is assuming no liability for statements made in accordance herewith, nor is it creating any rights or causes of action against the city.
