(2) In the event a letter of deficiency is sent to the zone applicant, the zone applicant shall submit information correcting the deficiency, at the earliest opportunity, but in no event after June 30, 1998. The Review Panel shall have 60 days to conduct its review of the submitted information to determine if the application is complete.
