137.5. The Commission shall give its assessment within 60 days of receiving a copy of the resolution requesting the assessment.
Any assessment stating that the by-law is not in conformity with the objectives of the development plan and the provisions of the complementary document may include the suggestions of the Commission on ways to ensure conformity.
The secretary of the Commission shall transmit a copy of the assessment to the municipality and the regional county municipality.
If the assessment indicates that the by-law is in conformity with the objectives of the development plan and the provisions of the complementary document, the secretary-treasurer shall, as soon as practicable after receipt of the copy of the assessment, issue a certificate of conformity in respect of the by-law and transmit a certified copy thereof to the municipality. However, where the by-law must also be approved by qualified voters and such approval has not been given when the secretary-treasurer receives a copy of the assessment of the Commission, the documents which must be issued or transmitted under this paragraph shall be issued or transmitted as soon as practicable after the regional county municipality receives the notice provided for in the third paragraph of section 137.2. Furthermore, where, pursuant to section 110.10.1, the council of the municipality adopts on the same day the by-law revising the planning program and the by-law that replaces the zoning or subdivision by-law, the issue and transmission in respect of the by-law that is the subject of the notice of the Commission may not be effected as long as the issue and transmission provided for in this section or in any of sections 109.7, 109.9 and 137.3 cannot be effected in respect of any other by-law so adopted on the same day; the issue and transmission in such a case are effected on the same day in respect of all the by-laws.
