ARTICLE 1. General Provisions [32000 - 32003]
  ( Article 1 added by Stats. 1983, Ch. 1264, Sec. 1. )

32000.
  

This division shall be known and may be cited as the California Urban Waterfront Area Restoration Financing Authority Act.

(Added by Stats. 1983, Ch. 1264, Sec. 1.)

32001.
  

The Legislature finds and declares that it is essential that the state, in cooperation with local governments, use all practical means and measures to restore, revitalize, and develop, in an economically and environmentally sound manner, the coastal and inland urban waterfront areas of the state.

The Legislature further finds that existing conditions in some of the state’s coastal urban waterfront areas prevent the attainment of one or more of the basic goals of the state set forth in Section 30001.5 for the coastal zone, and that existing sources of funding are not adequate to restore these areas in accordance with those goals.

The Legislature further finds that properly planned development of coastal and inland urban waterfronts with public recreation facilities, shoreline access facilities, visitor-serving commercial facilities, or coastal-dependent facilities, or with public works necessary for the implementation or preservation of an urban waterfront project, will promote attainment of the basic goals of the state for the coastal zone and will stimulate economic development and promote employment in coastal and inland urban waterfront areas.

(Added by Stats. 1983, Ch. 1264, Sec. 1.)

32002.
  

As to urban waterfront areas in the coastal zone, the purpose of this division is to carry out and make effective Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 31300) of Division 21 and, to that end, provide an economically feasible method of financing urban waterfront restoration.

(Added by Stats. 1983, Ch. 1264, Sec. 1.)

32003.
  

This division is necessary for the welfare of the state and its inhabitants and shall be liberally construed to implement its purposes.

(Added by Stats. 1983, Ch. 1264, Sec. 1.)
