SECTION 33100-33105


33100. There is in each community a public body, corporate and
politic, known as the redevelopment agency of the community.

33101. An agency which, on September 15, 1961, was not authorized
to transact any business or exercise any powers by a resolution
adopted prior to such date, shall not transact any business or
exercise any powers under this part unless, by ordinance, the
legislative body declares that there is need for an agency to
function in the community. The ordinance of the legislative body
declaring that there is need for an agency to function in the
community shall be subject to referendum as prescribed by law for a
county or a city ordinance.33102. The agency shall cause a certified copy of the ordinance to
be filed in the office of the county clerk.

33103. In any proceeding involving the validity or enforcement of,
or relating to, any contract by an agency, the agency is conclusively
deemed to have been established and authorized to transact business
and exercise its powers upon proof of the filing with the Secretary
of State of such an ordinance.33103.5. Any ordinance of a legislative body heretofore adopted
declaring the need for an agency to function in Crescent City is
hereby validated, and in any proceeding involving the validity of, or
enforcement of, or relating to, any contract by such an agency, the
agency is conclusively deemed to have been established and authorized
to transact business and exercise its powers upon proof that a copy
of such ordinance has been filed with the Secretary of State.
Notwithstanding Section 33101, any such ordinance adopted as an
emergency ordinance is not subject to referendum.

33104. Agencies which transacted business and exercised powers
prior to September 15, 1961, shall, in any proceeding involving the
validity of, or enforcement of, or relating to, any contract by an
agency, be conclusively deemed to have been established and
authorized to transact business and exercise its powers upon proof of
the adoption of a resolution adopted pursuant to the provisions of
this part which were in effect prior to September 15, 1961, or upon
proof that a copy of such resolution has been filed with the
Secretary of State.33105. In any case where an agency was activated in a community by
a resolution adopted pursuant to Section 33101 prior to January 1,
1951, and where thereafter and prior to January 1, 1951, the
legislative body of the community purported to dissolve the agency
under circumstances where Section 33140 was not applicable, and where
as a result of such purported dissolution the agency was inactive
for a period of at least 10 years, and where subsequent to January 1,
1962, the legislative body of the community adopted an ordinance
pursuant to Section 33101 declaring that there is need for an agency
to function in the community, which ordinance was not suspended by
referendum, and where subsequent to the adoption of such ordinance
new members of the agency were appointed pursuant to Section 33110,
such agency is a valid and existing agency with full power to
transact any business and exercise its powers and the members
appointed subsequent to the adoption of such ordinance are the
legally appointed and existing members of the agency, each for the
term designated in his appointment. For the purpose of applying
Section 33140 to such agency, the two-year period referred to in that
section shall be measured from the date of adoption of such
ordinance.
