a. Within 60 days of receiving the development transfer ordinance and accompanying documentation, the county planning board shall submit to the municipality formal comments detailing its review and shall either recommend or not recommend enactment of the development transfer ordinance. If enactment of the ordinance is recommended, the municipality may proceed with adoption of the ordinance. Failure to recommend or not recommend enactment of the ordinance within the 60-day period shall constitute recommendation of the ordinance.
b. The CADB shall review the development transfer ordinances and accompanying documentation within 30 days of receipt thereof, and shall submit such written recommendations as it deems appropriate, to the county planning board.
c. If the county planning board does not recommend enactment, the reasons therefor shall be clearly stated in their formal comments. If the objections of the county planning board cannot be resolved to the satisfaction of both the municipality and the county planning board within an additional 30 days, the municipality shall petition the Office of State Planning to render a final determination. In the event that a development transfer ordinance involves agricultural land, the municipality shall petition the Office of State Planning for a final determination.
d. The Office of State Planning shall review the record of comment of the county planning board, and the development transfer ordinance and supporting documentation, and within 60 days approve, approve with conditions, or disapprove the transfer ordinance stating in writing the reasons therefor. Failure of the Office of State Planning to approve, approve with conditions, or disapprove the development transfer ordinance within the 60-day period constitutes approval of the ordinance. The basis for review by the Office of State Planning shall be:
(1) compliance of the development transfer ordinance with the provisions of this act,
(2) accuracy of the information developed in the report and plans prepared pursuant to subsections a., b., and c. of section 5 of this act; and
