review to each city or village within the coastal resource service area. The council of a city or traditional village
council shall consider the plan submitted for review. Within 60 days of submission, the council of a city or
traditional village council shall either approve the plan or enter objections to all or any portion of the plan.

management plan prepared and submitted for approval under (a) of this section, the governing body shall advise the
coastal resource service area board of its objections to the proposed plan and suggest alternative elements or
components for inclusion in the district coastal management plan. New matter submitted by a city or village that meets
the statewide standards and district plan criteria adopted under this chapter shall be accepted and the district
coastal management plan modified accordingly. If a city or village fails to provide objections and suggested
alternatives within the time limits established in this section, the coastal resource service area board may adopt the
district coastal management plan as initially offered.
- (c) Objection by a city council under (b) of this section is limited to objection to elements of the plan affecting
