Stats. 1971, Ch. 719An act relating to qualification of contracts under the California Land Conservation Act of 1965 as enforceable restriction for purposes of property tax assessment.

Section 1. Contract deemed to provide enforceable restriction. A contract which at the time of its execution contained any or all of the requirements contained in this section shall be deemed to provide an enforceable restriction for purposes of Section 422 of the Revenue and Taxation Code and shall be entitled to assessment under Section 423, 423.5 or 429 of such code, provided that such contract otherwise conforms to the statutory requirements of the California Land Conservation Act of 1965, as contained in Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 51200) of Part 1 of Division 1 of Title 5 of the Government Code.

(a) If such contract provides for its nullification upon the filing of a condemnation of an interest in all or any part of the property subject to the contract and the board of supervisors of the county or city council of the city having jurisdiction over the land subject to such contract passes an ordinance interpreting such provision, in the case of a condemnation of less than a fee interest, to mean the nullification operates for purposes of establishing value for condemnation purposes but that any termination of the contract is to be pursuant to Article 5 (commencing with Section 51280) of Chapter 7 of Part 1 of Division 1 of Title 5 of the Government Code; or

(b) If such contract provides that the remaining portion of land after an action or acquisition by condemnation is determined by the board of supervisors of the county or city council of the city having jurisdiction over the land subject to the contract to be impaired to such extent as to make it unsuitable for those uses legally available to the owner under terms of his contract and the board of supervisors of the county or city council of the city having jurisdiction over the land subject to such contracts passes an ordinance stating that in administering such portion of a contract it will apply Article 5 (commencing with Section 51280) of Chapter 7 of Part 1 of Division 1 of Title 5 of the Government Code; or

(c) If such contract provides for any waiver of a cancellation payment provided that such waiver is in the best interest of the program to conserve agricultural land and the board of supervisors of the county or city council of the city having jurisdiction over the land subject to such contract passes an ordinance stating that in administering such portion of a contract, it will apply subdivision (c) of Section 51283 of the Government Code.
