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 Metropolitan Council originally approval the 2030 Planning Areas on January 14, 2004. The planning areas were amended on December 13, 2006. The dataset reflects updates to the 2030 Planning Areas as specified in communities' 2008 Comprehensive Plans which have received Metropolitan Council approval between 2006 and February 2013. Not all communities have finalized their 2008 Comprehensive Plans as of May 2014. Planning Areas reflect municipal boundaries and Metropolitan Urban Service Areas (MUSA) as of May 22 2014.
