(4)The Commission may charge a fee for holding a pre-application conference. The Commission shall set the fee. The Commission shall hold a public hearing before establishing a fee for pre-application conferences.
(5)The purpose of the pre-application conference is to assist the applicant to complete the Plan Amendment process successfully and expeditiously, identify possible practicable alternatives, identify issues that concern the Commission and other agencies and interested persons, determine what information would be necessary for the Executive Director to review the application, give an estimated schedule for considering the application, and identify possible conditions of approval.
(6)The Executive Director shall issue a pre-application conference report, which shall summarize the discussion at the conference and shall contain a preliminary list of information necessary to review the application. The list of necessary information shall be as comprehensive as reasonably possible, but shall not be exclusive.
