Sec. 9-3.1602.  Dedication of land for park and recreational purposes.
   The Council does hereby find, determine, and declare as follows:
   (a)   In 1965, the Legislature of the State amended the Subdivision Map Act (formerly Sections 11500, et seq., of the Business and Professions Code of the State) to enable counties to require either the dedication of land, the payment of fees, or a combination of both for park or recreational purposes as a condition of the approval of a subdivision map; and
   (b)   In 1972, the Legislature of the State amended the Subdivision Map Act (formerly Section 11596 of the Business and Professions Code of the State), to enable cities and counties to also require either the dedication of land, the payment of fees, or a combination of both for park or recreational purposes as a condition of the approval of a parcel map for a division of land not a subdivision; and
   (c)   Before a city or county may avail itself of said Act, it shall have a General Plan containing a recreational element with definite principles and standards for park and recreational facilities to serve the residents of the city or county; and
   (d)   The Council has amended the General Plan of the City to include such recreational element; and
   (e)   The revised Subdivision Map Act continues the earlier substantive provision as Section 66477 of the Government Code of the State.
