(a) As an alternate provision, owner's development liens previously imposed upon a particular parcel or parcels of property which are subsequently subdivided may be apportioned to provide that the owner's development liens shall be imposed upon the individual lots and condominium units created by one or more subdivisions. The liens need not necessarily be imposed upon a pro rata basis based upon acreage, but may be imposed pursuant to Section 17446 to provide for an equal or equitable portion of the total lien to be imposed upon each individual dwelling unit or resulting separate parcel. In imposing the owner's development liens on individual lots and condominium units, there may be excluded from the liens property which becomes subject to restrictions that preclude development thereon including, but not limited to, areas of common ownership, streets, and easements. Prior to the apportionments of an owner's development lien pursuant to this section, the governing board of the school district shall adopt a resolution which shall include the following:
(1) A legal description of the real property on which an owner's development lien has previously been imposed.
(2) The intention of the governing board to apportion the owner's development lien to provide for an equitable apportionment of the lien upon individual lots and condominium units within the properties to be subdivided.
(3) A map showing the subdivided lands, together with the proposed owner's development liens to be imposed upon the individual lots and condominium units within one or more such subdivisions.
(b) Upon adoption of the resolution, the secretary of the school district shall mail a copy of the resolution to each owner of the property upon which the owner's development lien has previously been imposed as shown on the last equalized assessment roll. A copy of this resolution shall be published pursuant to Section 6066 of the Government Code. The secretary of the school district shall mail copies of the resolution to any beneficiary of deeds of trust upon the property. No sooner than 30 days after the mailings, the governing board may consider objections to the proposed apportionment of the owner's development lien. Provided that all owners of the parcels over which the lien is to be apportioned, including any beneficiary under any deeds of trust, or any beneficiary under any deed of trust, have consented, the owner's development lien may be apportioned to provide for an equitable portion of the total development lien to be placed upon the individual lots, condominium units or separate parcels created within one or more of the subdivisions. A resolution approving the apportionment of the owner' s development lien shall thereafter be adopted and recorded with the county recorder of the county or counties in which the real property is located. Apportionment pursuant to this section shall be effective upon the recordation. The apportionment of the owner's development lien shall in no way either increase or decrease the total amount of the owner's development lien which has previously been imposed upon the properties involved. However, the original owner's development lien which had been previously imposed shall be released of record at the time the apportionment of the lien pursuant to this section is recorded.
