The economic development authority has all of the powers and duties granted to or imposed upon economic development authorities under Minnesota Statutes, sections 469.090 to 469.1081. The county economic development authority may create and define the boundaries of economic development districts at any place or places within the county, provided that a project as recommended by the county authority that is to be located within the corporate limits of a city may not be commenced without the approval of the governing body of the city.
