(a)The local public agency shall annually certify to the department that for a small craft harbor or boating facility project that is, or has been, funded pursuant to Section 70, 70.2, 70.8, 71.4, 72.5, or 76.3, or a harbor constructed with funds from the State Lands Commission from tidelands oil revenues, adequate restroom and sanitary facilities, parking, refuse disposal, vessel pumpout facilities as required pursuant to Section 776, walkways, oil recycling facilities, receptacles for the purpose of separating, reusing, or recycling all solid waste materials, and other necessary shoreside facilities sufficient for the use and operation of all vessels using the harbor or facility are provided or provide written findings showing why the facility cannot certify to these conditions.
(b)A city, county, or district, which has received or is receiving money under this division for the construction or improvement of small craft harbors that provides facilities for the operation of commercial fishing vessels registered pursuant to Article 4 (commencing with Section 7880) of Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division 6 of the Fish and Game Code, shall not prohibit the commercial operation and use of those facilities by commercial passenger fishing vessels of the same or similar displacement, which are licensed pursuant to Section 7920 of the Fish and Game Code, or the use by private recreational vessels unless otherwise expressly provided by law, unless the city, county, or district provides, elsewhere in the same harbor, alternative, equivalent facilities available at comparable cost for the commercial operation and use of commercial passenger fishing vessels and private recreational vessels or unless the city, county, or district adopts written findings showing why the existing facility cannot accommodate the operation of commercial fishing vessels, including commercial passenger fishing vessels, or private recreational vessels and why the facility cannot be modified to do so or why alternative, equivalent facilities cannot be provided in the same harbor to accommodate those operations. This subdivision does not require a facility to accept an application for the operation of an additional commercial passenger fishing boat at that facility if the harbor provides alternative, equivalent, adequate, safe facilities at comparable cost for the operation and use of commercial passenger fishing boats or if accommodations for the operation of the additional commercial passenger fishing boat are not reasonably available at the facility under the contract or agreement.
For the purposes of this subdivision, an alternative, equivalent facility in the same harbor shall provide, at comparable cost, adequate restroom and sanitary facilities, parking, refuse disposal, vessel pumpout facilities, walkways, oil recycling facilities, receptacles for the purpose of separating, reusing, or recycling all solid waste materials, power and water service, and other shoreside facilities and equivalent docks, water channels, navigation aids, and weather protection, including, but not limited to, breakwaters, which are equivalent to the facility funded pursuant to Section 70, 70.2, 70.8, 71.4, 72.5, or 76.3.
(c)(1)A loan, grant, contract or agreement, or plan funded pursuant to Section 70, 70.2, 70.8, 71.4, 72.5, or 76.3 for a small craft harbor or boating facility project shall provide for construction, development, or improvement of facilities to meet the provisions of subdivisions (a) and (b), and provide vehicular access roads to the harbor or facility, as recommended by the Department of Transportation pursuant to Division 13 (commencing with Section 21000) of the Public Resources Code, unless the reasons for not meeting those provisions and recommendations are set forth in the contract or agreement with the department, or an addendum thereto.
(2)The small craft harbor or boating facility shall be designed, constructed, developed, improved, and operated to meet, at a minimum, applicable certification standards described in the Tier 1 standards of the California Green Building Standards Code (Part 11 of Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations).
(d)During the term of any existing or new loan contract made pursuant to Section 71.4, or 76.3, or any existing or new contract or agreement pursuant to Section 70, 70.2, or 70.8, the department shall supervise and monitor compliance with this section and the operation and maintenance of the harbor or facility to assure that the planning, construction, development, or improvement fully complies with this section and the contract or agreement terms and conditions.
(e)For the purposes of this chapter and Article 2 (commencing with Section 70) of Chapter 2, a harbor or facility that is the subject of a contract or agreement as described in subdivision (d), is under the jurisdiction of the department.
