*The next step after the public hearing that was held, or if the SB wants to have additional public hearings prior to a formal SB meeting, is for the SB to hold a duly warned SB meeting to determine what, if any, changes to the PC’s submitted plan it will make. At its meeting, the SB may change the plan (see § 4385(b)) and if those changes are substantive then a public hearing(s) needs to be scheduled to discuss the SB adopted proposed changes. The written changes are to be filed with the Town Clerk, anyone requesting a copy of the changes in writing and with the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission is charged with submitting a report at or prior to the public hearing analyzing the extent to which the proposed changes, taken together with the rest of the plan, is consistent with the legislative goals set out in 24 V.S.A. § 4302. After a final public hearing is held and if no further changes are made by the SB, the SB would then hold a duly warned SB meeting to adopt the plan by majority vote.
