    amendment either in compliance or not in compliance.
17. If the amendment is found to be not in compliance then DCA, the County,
    and the applicant must enter into negotiations which could result in a
    Stipulated Settlement Agreement which will identify measures needed to
    bring the amendment into compliance.
18. If the amendment is found to be in compliance then the ordinance adopting the
    amendment will become effective 21 days after the date the Notice of Intent is
    issued, if no administrative hearing challenge is filed.
