For the purpose of allocating taxes pursuant to Section 33670 and subject to the provisions of this article, redevelopment project areas under the jurisdiction of the redevelopment agency of the Cities of Chula Vista, San Jose, and Santa Fe Springs, for which redevelopment plans have been adopted pursuant to Article 5 (commencing with Section 33360) of this chapter, may be merged, irrespective of contiguity, by the amendment of each affected redevelopment plan as provided in Article 12 (commencing with Section 33450) of this chapter. Each constituent project area so merged shall continue under its own redevelopment plan, but, except as otherwise provided in this article, taxes attributable to each project area merged pursuant to this section which are allocated to the redevelopment agency pursuant to Section 33670 may be allocated, as provided in subdivision (b) of such section, to the entire merged project area for the purpose of paying the principal of and interest on loans, moneys advanced to, or indebtedness (whether funded, refunded, assumed, or otherwise) incurred by the redevelopment agency to finance or refinance, in whole or in part, such merged redevelopment project.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 243.)

33481.
  

If the redevelopment agency has, prior to merger of redevelopment project areas pursuant to Section 33480, incurred any indebtedness on account of a constituent project area so merged, taxes attributable to that area which are allocated to the agency pursuant to Section 33670 shall be first used to comply with the terms of any bond resolution or other agreement pledging such taxes from the constituent project area.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 243.)

33482.
  

The redevelopment plan for a project area which is merged pursuant to Section 33480 shall be amended in the same manner as other redevelopment plans are amended. Notice of the public hearing shall be mailed to the last known assessee of each parcel of land not owned by the agency within the boundaries of the project area described in the redevelopment plan being amended. Notice of the public hearing need not be mailed to assessees of parcels of land within the boundaries of other project areas combined into a merged project area pursuant to Section 33480, except that notice of the public hearing shall be given to the project area committee for each project area which is part of the merged project area.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 243.)

33483.
  

Not less than 20 percent of all taxes which are allocated to the redevelopment agency pursuant to Section 33670 for redevelopment projects merged pursuant to this article, irrespective of the date of adoption of the final redevelopment plans, shall be used for the purposes set forth in Section 33334.2.

(Added by Stats. 1979, Ch. 243.)

33484.
  

This article shall be applicable only to redevelopment projects of the redevelopment agency of the Cities of Chula Vista, San Jose, and Santa Fe Springs for which a final redevelopment plan was adopted by ordinance on or before January 1, 1979.

The Legislature finds and declares that conditions unique to the financing of redevelopment in the Cities of Chula Vista, San Jose, and Santa Fe Springs require the granting of authority to merge project areas.
