dsCurrentRef Planning areas were first defined to analyze land use and development trends and socio-economic characteristics to assist in preparing the Council's 1975 Metropolitan Development Framework. They have subsequently been used for a wide range of general analysis purposes. These areas were defined to reflect stages of development of metropolitan area communities. A major factor in their determination has been the proportion of land developed. As such, these areas have been periodically adjusted to reflect the continued outward growth of the region. The dataset reflects Metropolitan Council approval on January 14, 2004 and 1 amendment approved on December 13, 2006. No updates have been made to adjust policy area boundaries to match municipal boundary changes since 2004.
