473.856 METROPOLITAN SYSTEM STATEMENTS; AMENDMENTS.
     The council shall prepare and transmit to each affected local governmental unit a
metropolitan system statement when the council updates or revises its comprehensive
development guide for the metropolitan area in conjunction with the decennial review required
under section 473.864, subdivision 2, and when the council amends or modifies a metropolitan
system plan. The statement shall contain information relating to the unit and appropriate
surrounding territory that the council determines necessary for the unit to consider in reviewing
the unit's comprehensive plan. The statement may include:
    (1) the timing, character, function, location, projected capacity, and conditions on use for
existing or planned metropolitan public facilities, as specified in metropolitan system plans, and
for state and federal public facilities to the extent known to the council; and
    (2) the population, employment, and household projections which have been used by the
council as a basis for its metropolitan system plans.
    Within nine months after receiving a system statement for an amendment to a metropolitan
system plan, and within three years after receiving a system statement issued in conjunction
with the decennial review required under section 473.864, subdivision 2, each affected local
governmental unit shall review its comprehensive plan to determine if an amendment is necessary
to ensure continued conformity with metropolitan system plans. If an amendment is necessary, the
governmental unit shall prepare the amendment and submit it to the council for review pursuant to
sections 462.355, 473.175, and 473.851 to 473.871.
