Whenever a court refers a proposed boundary line adjustment to the commission pursuant to § 15.2-3109 of the Code of Virginia, the localities proposing the boundary line adjustment shall, upon receipt of notification of the referral, provide the commission with a copy of their petition to the court and shall designate an individual for each locality who shall serve as principal contact with the commission and shall furnish the individual's title, address, phone number, and, where available, fax number and email address. Referrals to the commission pursuant to § 15.2-3109 of the Code of Virginia shall also be accompanied by a listing of local governments receiving notice of the referral under subsection C of this section.

B. The two localities proposing a boundary line adjustment pursuant to § 15.2-3109 of the Code of Virginia may, jointly or independently, submit to the commission with their petition as much data, exhibits, documents, or other supporting materials as they deem appropriate; however, such submissions should be fully responsive to all relevant elements of 1VAC50-20-600.

C. Whenever a proposed boundary line adjustment is referred to the commission for review pursuant to § 15.2-3109 of the Code of Virginia, the localities proposing the adjustment shall concurrently give notice of the proposed adjustment as well as notice of the referral of the issue to the commission to each Virginia local government with which either party is contiguous and to any other Virginia local government deemed by the localities proposing the adjustment to be potentially affected by the proposed adjustment. The notice shall include a copy of the petition requesting the boundary line adjustment, or an informative summary thereof, and an annotated listing of all documents, exhibits, and other materials submitted to the commission for review pursuant to subsection B of this section.

D. Any local government receiving notice of a proposed boundary line adjustment pursuant to subsection C of this section, or any other party, may submit data, exhibits, documents, or other supporting materials relevant to the commission's review as they deem appropriate; however, such submissions should be responsive to all relevant elements of 1VAC50-20-600. Any party submitting materials to the commission pursuant to this chapter shall also designate an individual who shall serve as principal contact with the commission during the period of its review and shall furnish the individual's title, address, phone number, and, where available, fax number and email address.
