new form of, all or any part of the San Francisco Bay Plan but such
changes shall be consistent with the findings and declarations of
policy contained in this title.
Such changes shall be made by resolution of the commission adopted
after public hearing on the proposed change, of which adequate

defines a water-oriented use referred to in Section 66602 or 66605,
the resolution adopting the change shall not be voted upon less than
90 days following notice of hearing on the proposed change and shall
require the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the commission members.

commission shall exercise its power to grant or deny a permit in
conformity with the provisions of this title and with any provisions
of the plan pertaining to placing of fill, extraction of materials,
construction methods and use or change of use of water areas, land or
structures. If a function or activity is outside the area of the

permit, any provisions of the plan pertaining thereto are advisory
66654. Within the area of the commission's jurisdiction under
subdivisions (b), (c) and (d) of Section 66610, any uses which are in

except in accordance with this title.
Any owner of property devoted to an existing use or uses may file
an application with the commission to determine the nature of such
existing use or uses, the extent of territory then devoted to such
use or uses, and such additional territory adjacent thereto as may be
expected to be reasonably necessary for the expansion of such use or
uses during a period of not to exceed 15 years from the date of
filing such application. Not later than 90 days after such filing,
the commission after public hearing shall adopt a resolution making
such determination. After the adoption of such resolution no permit
need be obtained from the commission for any of the existing use or
uses specifed in the resolution or for the expansion thereof within
the territory described in said resolution.
66655. If, prior to September 1, 1969, any city or county has
adopted an ordinance or issued a permit authorizing a particular use
or uses within the areas defined in subdivisions (b), (c) and (d) of
Section 66610, no person who has obtained a vested right thereunder
shall be required to secure a permit from the commission, providing,
that no substantial changes may be made in any such use or uses,
except in accordance with this title. Any such person shall be
deemed to have such vested rights if, prior to September 1, 1969, he
has in good faith and in reliance upon the ordinance or permit
commenced and performed substantial work on the use or uses
authorized and incurred substantial liabilities for work and
materials necessary therefor. Expenses incurred in obtaining the
enactment of an ordinance or the issuance of a permit shall not be
deemed liabilities for work or material.

requirements of Section 66632 for placement of fill within the area

notify the commission by filing a claim of exemption with the
commission. Failure of any person to file a claim of exemption
within such time shall subject such activity of such person within
such area of the commission's jurisdiction to the permit requirements
of this act.

including public hearings, for determining claims of exemption and
may require documentation, including declarations under penalty of
perjury or affidavits, to support any claim of exemption.

of this section, but the failure of any person to receive such notice
shall not extend the period within which a claim of exemption is
required to be filed under this section.

received a written determination by or on behalf of the commission
prior to January 1, 1974, that a specific project is exempt from the

agreement with the commission relating to a claim of exemption.
