      (3)   A public hearing is not required if the District Council does not intend to propose any revisions,  modifications, or amendments to the Planning Board draft plan.
   (b)    (1)   The public hearing required under this section may be held in the area that is affected by the plan.
      (2)   Notice of the public hearing required under this section must:

         (B)   be published at least once in a newspaper of general circulation in this County;
         (C)   specify the time and place of the hearing, the area affected, and the subject matter of the hearing; and
         (D)   be mailed to all citizens' associations that received notice of the public hearing of the Commission.
      (3)   The District Council must request any municipality that received a Planning Board draft plan or amendment to provide its comments and recommendations no later than 10 days before the public hearing in order to inform the general public of those comments and recommendations before the public hearing.
   (c)    (1)   After the public hearing, the District Council must approve or disapprove the Planning Board draft plan or amendment with any modifications or amendments that the District Council finds appropriate.

   Editor's note—The obligation of the district council to conduct public hearings set forth in § 33A-8 was previously contained in § 33A-7(b)(ii) which is cited in Boyds Civic Ass’n. v. Montgomery County, 309 Md. 683, 526 A.2d 598 (1987), and in JMC Const. Corp., Inc. v. Montgomery County, 54 Md.
