34000. (a) (1) The Legislature finds and declares all of the
(A) Floods, fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, storms, tidal waves,
or other catastrophes are disasters that can harm the public health,
safety, and welfare. Communities need effective methods for
rebuilding after disasters.
(B) The extraordinary powers of redevelopment agencies have been
and can be useful in the reconstruction of buildings and in
stimulating local economic activity.
(C) The procedures and requirements of the Community Redevelopment
Law (Part 1 (commencing with Section 33000)) restrict the ability of
local officials to respond quickly after disasters.
(2) In enacting this part, it is, therefore, the intent of the
Legislature to provide communities with alternative procedures and
requirements for redevelopment after disasters.
(b) Any redevelopment agency or project area established pursuant
to the Community Redevelopment Financial Assistance and Disaster
Project Law (former Part 1.5 (commencing with Section 34000)), as
that law existed prior to the effective date of the act that repeals
that law, shall remain in existence and subject to that law as if the
Legislature had not repealed that law.
(c) This part shall apply only to redevelopment activities
undertaken pursuant to its provisions on and after the effective date
of the act that adds this part.
(d) This part is known and may be cited as the Community
Redevelopment Disaster Project Law.
