In a city or town having a planning commission established under this chapter, but
which has not adopted an official map, no public way shall be laid out, altered, relocated
or discontinued unless the proposed laying out, alteration, relocation or discontinuance
has been referred to the planning commission of such city or town and such commission
has reported thereon or has allowed 45 days to elapse after such reference without
submitting its report. Any city or town having a planning commission established under this chapter may,
by ordinance, bylaw or vote, provide for the reference of any other matter or class
of matters to the planning commission before final action thereon with or without
provision that final action shall not be taken until the planning commission has submitted
its report or has had a reasonable fixed time to submit such report. Such planning commission shall have full power to make such investigations, maps
and reports and recommendations in connection therewith, relating to any of the subjects
referred to under this section, as it deems desirable.
