Property Tax Annotations
830.0030 Eminent Domain. The immediate rezoning provisions of Government Code section 51155 are operative only when land zoned as timberland production is acquired by eminent domain or in lieu of eminent domain by a public agency of the State or a local government, or the federal government or one of its instrumentalities or agencies. The phrase "in lieu of eminent domain" refers to situations where a public entity proposes to acquire property with the intention of exercising the power of eminent domain in the event the property owner is unwilling to sell the property at a reasonable price based on the fair market value. These provisions do not apply when the state simply purchases property without eminent domain action being contemplated. C 4/15/2002.
