area in which the city is located, if any, for review and comment. The appropriate reviewing
agency shall comment on:

the city, if any.

changes from the program submitted to the reviewing agency other than changes in the financial
aspects of any proposed issue of bonds or obligations. If any material change other than a change
in the financial aspects of a proposed issue of bonds or obligations, or any change which is
inconsistent with the comments of the reviewing agency is adopted, the amended program shall
be resubmitted to the appropriate reviewing agency for review and comment, and a public hearing
