The developer may submit a planned unit development initial development plan and fee to the planning office before the monthly planning commission deadline. The process includes the following:
   (a)   To assist the developer, the application may be submitted up to five working days before the planning commission submittal deadline to review the application to determine whether it contains all elements required by § 160.444.
   (b)   If the planning office determines that the application does not contain all elements as required by § 160.444, then the applicant shall be notified in writing of the specific deficiencies; and that the application shall not be scheduled for a public hearing until all elements of the application are submitted. The applicant has until the submittal deadline to submit all elements.
   (c)   When the planning office determines that the application does contain all elements as required by § 160.444, the application shall be scheduled for a planning commission public hearing by the planning office on a day when the planning commission is regularly scheduled to meet as determined by the rules, policies, and regulations as adopted or which may hereafter be adopted by the planning commission for holding public hearings on such requests.
   (d)   The city planning and building services director will review within ten days to determine compliance with all standards of the appropriate planned unit development district listed in §§ 160.448 through 160.452.
   (e)   If the planning and building services director determines that the initial development plan does not meet the criteria, a one-month deferral of the plan may occur and the planning office shall identify specific required information in its notification to the applicant at the end of the ten-day review period. After the one-month deferral and a resubmitted preliminary initial plan, the planning and building services director may schedule the preliminary plan for a planning commission public hearing.
   (f)   Signs shall be posted on the property for a continuous period of seven days immediately prior to any public hearing held by the planning commission or city council to consider any initial development plan. Said signs shall be furnished by the department of planning and building services and posted by the applicant in the numbers and locations prescribed by the director.
   (g)   If an amended initial development plan is required in the Downtown PUD, the amendment must first by reviewed by the Downtown Design Review Committee with a meeting scheduled before the next monthly planning commission meeting or the amendment application shall then move forward to the planning commission. Any recommendation by the downtown design review committee shall be forwarded to the planning commission for their consideration.
   (h)   The planning commission shall review the initial plan and approve, disapprove, or approve with conditions.
