Subdivided lands may be merged and re-subdivided without reverting to acreage by complying with all applicable requirements for the subdivision of land as provided for in this title.  The filing of the final map or final parcel map shall constitute legal merging of the separate parcels into one parcel and the re-subdivision of such parcel and the real property shall thereafter be shown with the new lot or parcel boundaries on the assessment roll.  Any unused fees or deposits previously made pursuant to this title pertaining to the property shall be credited pro rata towards any requirements for the same purposes, which are applicable at the time of re-subdivision.  Any streets or easements to be left in effect after the re-subdivision shall be adequately delineated on the map.  After approval of the merger and re-subdivision by the City Council, the map shall be delivered to the Recorder.  The filing of the map shall constitute legal merger and re-subdivision of the land affected thereby and shall also constitute abandonment of all streets and easements not shown on the map.
