(4) The director will issue the work program within 120 days after receipt of the joint written notification under section (2). The director's decision on the work program is final and may not be appealed.
(5) The product of each task on the work program shall be a change to a comprehensive plan or land use regulation or a new land use regulation adopted by the city and adopted by the county or counties if required.
