Such review shall be undertaken in consultation with representatives of providers, consumers and family members of individuals with mental illness and developmental disabilities and representatives of local governments and municipalities. Additionally, the study shall contain data regarding estimates of the number of people who will be discharged from state institutions in the next five years including their expected residential needs and include estimates of the expected need for appropriate residential opportunities for individuals already reşiding in the community.

to

reasonable levels;

concentrated in certain localities, and so that municipalities, or

than fourteen beds to meet any other requirement of this section, or to deem such facilities family units for the purposes

of local laws and ordinances.

$ 4. This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall have become a law, provided however, it shall not apply to residential facilities for which, in the judgment of the commissioner of mental health, sites were selected prior to such effective date.
