A parcel map, upon approval by the zoning administrator, pursuant to Chapter 23.70 PGMC, shall be filed and recorded for any subdivision for which a tentative and final map is not required by the Subdivision Map Act except for subdivisions created by short-term leases (terminable by either party on not more than 30 days’ notice in writing) of a portion of an operating right-of-way of a railroad corporation defined as such by Section 230 of the Public Utilities Code; provided, however, that upon a showing made to the zoning administrator based upon substantial evidence, that public policy necessitates such a map, this exception shall not apply.

Such maps shall meet all the requirements of the Subdivision Map Act and of this title and shall show all dedications or offers of dedication thereon. The zoning administrator may require that such dedications or offers of dedication be made by deed in lieu of or in addition to appearing on the map. [Ord. 11-001 § 8, 2011; Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.02.010].

The parcel map shall also include the following:

(a) Locations, names, and existing width of all adjoining and contiguous roadways;

(b) Locations and size of all pipelines and structures used in connection therewith;

(c) Location and outline of all existing structures on the property, with an indication of their uses and whether they are to remain, be relocated, or be removed;

(d) Location of all trees measuring six inches or more in diameter at a height of two feet above existing grade level;

(e) A statement as to the existence of public utilities services (including water, electricity, gas, telephone), mail delivery, sewers, garbage collection, streets or rights-of-way, curbs, gutters, or any other improvements on the land, or what provision is made for each;

(f) Any additional information which may be reasonably required by the community development director to carry out the purposes hereof. [Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.02.020].

24.08.030 Report from community development department – Compliance with regulations.

Within 10 days of receiving a parcel map, the community development department shall prepare a report to the zoning administrator as to its compliance with the general plan and this title, and such other matters as may be deemed necessary to secure compliance with this code. [Ord. 11-001 § 8, 2011; Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.02.030].

24.08.050 Scheduling of public hearing.

Upon receiving the community development department’s report, the zoning administrator shall schedule a public hearing in accordance with the provisions of the Subdivision Map Act to consider the parcel map. [Ord. 11-001 § 8, 2011; Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.02.050].

24.08.060 Compliance with general plan.

Prior to granting approval for a parcel map, the zoning administrator shall find specifically that the proposed subdivision, together with its provisions for design and improvements, is consistent with the general plan. [Ord. 11-001 § 8, 2011; Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.02.060].

24.08.070 Additional provisions.

All parcel maps shall provide for the following:

(a) Curbs and sidewalks shall be installed along all public street frontages, unless waived by the zoning administrator after finding that such requirement unfairly discriminates against the subdivider in relation to other developed properties in the neighborhood;

(b) Sanitary sewer facilities and connections of each lot;

(c) Each unit or parcel of land shall contain a minimum frontage of 40 feet along a dedicated street;

(d) Access to the land shall be by dedicated street of a minimum right-of-way of 50 feet; provided, that the minimum right-of-way in the R-1-B-3 zone district shall be 40 feet;

Any person claiming to be aggrieved by the decision of the zoning administrator may, within 10 days after the rendering of such decision, appeal in writing to the planning commission for review thereof. The planning commission shall fully review the matter and (1) affirm the findings of the zoning administrator; (2) reverse the findings; or (3) refer the matter back to the zoning administrator for further action. [Ord. 11-001 § 8, 2011; Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.02.080].

24.08.090 Waiver – Hearing.

The zoning administrator shall, after hearing, waive the requirement of a parcel map when it shall specifically find that the proposed division of land complies with all of the requirements of PGMC Titles 23 and 24 as to area, improvement and design, floodwater drainage control, appropriate improved public roads, sanitary disposal facilities, water supply availability, environmental protection and all other provisions of this code. The zoning administrator is authorized to require that a tentative map be filed prior to any such hearing. [Ord. 11-001 § 8, 2011; Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 938 N.S. § 3, 1977. Formerly 24.02.090].
