   No later than 10 days after the public hearing, the Plan Commission shall submit their advisory report/findings of fact to the City Council.  The Plan Commission shall not recommend the adoption of any amendment unless they find that such amendment is in the public interest and not merely for the benefit of the party proposing it.  Where the effect of a proposed amendment is to alter district boundaries or to change the status (permitted, special, or prohibited) of any use, the Plan Commission shall make findings regarding all of the following matters:
   (A)   Existing uses of property in the vicinity of the property in question;
   (B)   The district classification of property in the vicinity of the property in question;
   (C)   The suitability of the property in question for uses already permitted under the existing district classification;
   (D)   The trend of development in the vicinity of property in question, including changes (if any) which may have taken place since that property was placed in its present district classification.
