The Planning Commission shall, at the direc- <br />tion of the Council, or may in its own discretion, set <br />proposed amendments for public hearing in the manner <br />prescribed by State law. <br />C.

The request should clearly set forth the <br />reason for which the request is made, and should contain <br />information substantiating the need. If the Planning Comm- <br />ission, after examination, is convinced that the proposed <br />change is worthy-of consideration, it may initiate amend- <br />ment as set forth above. If not, the Commission shall <br />forward the request to the City Council with its recommend- <br />ation that consideration of amendment is unwarranted.
