SEC. 15-11.  TENTATIVE PARCEL MAPS AND PARCEL MAPS REQUIRED; EXEMPTIONS; WAIVERS.
   (A)   A tentative parcel map and a parcel map shall be required for each division of land creating four or fewer parcels and for each subdivision that is subject to an exception stated in Cal. Gov't Code, Section 66426.
   (B)   Neither a tentative parcel map nor parcel map shall be required in the situations described in Cal. Gov't Code, Section 66428, Subdivisions (1) and (2); provided, however, that a parcel map shall be required in a situation described in Cal. Gov't Code, Section 66428, Subsection (a), Subdivision (2) and the decision-making body finds, based on facts in the record, that public policy necessitates a parcel map.
   (C)   The commission may waive the requirement for a tentative parcel map and a parcel map, provided that the commission finds at the time of waiver that the proposed division of land complies with requirements established by the Subdivision Map Act and this chapter, including but not limited to requirements as to area, improvement and design, floodwater drainage control, appropriate improved public roads, sanitary disposal facilities, water supply availability and environmental protection.
   (D)   A lot line adjustment between four or fewer existing adjoining parcels, where the land taken from one parcel is added to an adjoining parcel and where a greater number of parcels than originally existed is not thereby created, may be approved by the director without a tentative subdivision map, final map, tentative parcel map or a parcel map, as follows:
      (1)   The director's review shall be limited to determining whether the parcels resulting from the lot line adjustment will conform to the city's general plan, the city's coastal plan (if applicable) and the city's building and zoning ordinances, including whether the resulting parcels comply with the area, width, frontage and yard requirements of the applicable zone.  No nonconforming uses or structures may be created by a line adjustment.
      (2)   The director shall not impose conditions or exactions on approval of a lot line adjustment except to conform to the city's general plan, the city's coastal plan (if applicable), and the city's building and zoning ordinances, to require the prepayment of real property taxes or to facilitate the relocation of existing utilities, infrastructure or easements.
      (3)   Prior to approval of the lot line adjustment, the applicant shall submit to the city engineer for review a grant deed that describes the proposed boundaries of the parcels.  If a lot line adjustment is approved, the applicant shall record the deed.
      (4)   City staff shall not require a record of survey for a lot line adjustment unless required by Cal. Bus. and Prof. Code, Section 8762.
