Chapter 6.7. Timberland*
Article 2. Timberland Production Zones†
51117. Recording with county recorder. When land is zoned as timberland production or subsequently rezoned from a timberland production zone and after exhaustion of appeals, a notice of timberland production zone status, together with a map and assessor's parcel numbers describing such land, shall be filed for record by the city or county in the recorder's office. The notice and map shall become a part of the official records of the county recorder upon its acceptance by him for filing. The filing for record of a notice of timberland production, together with a map and assessor's parcel numbers describing the land, shall impart constructive notice thereof.
History.—Stats. 1978, Ch. 1109, in effect September 26, 1978, deleted the phrase "recorded by the city or county in the recorder's office in the same manner as deeds are recorded.", and replaced it with the phrase "filed for record by the city or county in the recorder's office." and added the second sentence.
