07 Ops.Cal.Atty.Gen. 801 (August 21, 2007)
On August 21, 2007, at the request of Honorable Dick Ackerman, Attorney General Edmund Brown opined that the grant of a conservation easement does not trigger the requirements of the Subdivision Map Act because it does not constitute a “subdivision” for purposes of the act. Thus, a corporation’s grant of a conservation easement under which the corporation would maintain ownership and possession of the property subject to the easement did not trigger the requirements of the act.
