Every community in the seven-county metropolitan area within the Metropolitan Council’s jurisdiction has received a “system statement” – a document that is required by state law and intended to help communities review and, if necessary, amend their local comprehensive plans. See tables of links to systems statements, below.
The system statement is a customized document informing each community how it is affected by the Metropolitan Council’s policy plans for regional systems – transportation, aviation, water resources, and regional parks and open space. Current forecasts for metropolitan area cities, townships and counties are online in PDF and Excel formats.
