            a.   Plans must include at a minimum: location, size, height, materials and orientation of all proposed signs.
            
 (C)   The applicant need not submit plans for all buildings, landscaping and signs simultaneously, and may instead submit multiple sets of plans, each of which shall be separately and independently reviewed. 
         
 (D)  The DRB shall have 60 days from the date a set of plans is presented to it to take action on those plans. The time frame may be extended for revisions.  If the DRB disapproves any plans, it shall state the reasons for that disapproval in writing and shall inform the applicant that it may withdraw those plans. A disapproved application shall be placed on the next scheduled Village Council’s agenda under “New Business” for their decision.
