§ 94.03  ADMINISTRATION.
   (A)   The City Council shall designate by resolution from time to time the person responsible for the administration of the Environmental Review Program, this chapter, and the rules adopted by reference to this chapter.
   (B)   The person responsible for the administration of the Environmental Review Program shall be responsible for determining whether an action for which a permit is required is an action for which an EAW is mandatory under 6MCAR 3.024. He or she shall also determine those proposed actions for which an optional EAW may be required under the provisions of this chapter and shall notify the Planning Commission and the City Council of these proposed actions.
   (C)   All EAWs and EISs shall be prepared under the supervision of the person responsible for the administration of the Environmental Review Program, reviewed by the Planning Commission and reviewed and approved by the City Council.
   (D)   When reviewing an EAW or EIS, the person responsible for the administration of the Environmental Review Program and the Planning Commission may suggest design alterations which would lesson the environmental impact of the action. The City Council may require these design alterations to be made as a condition for issuing the permit when it finds that the design alterations are necessary to lessen the environmental impact of the action.
   (E)   After an EAW is prepared, the Planning Commission shall review the EAW and recommend to the City Council whether or not it should require the preparation of an EIS. The City Council shall require an EIS when it finds under 6MCAR 3.025 that an action is major and has potential for significant environmental effects.
