8.2 General Amendment Procedure

Only the District Board of Managers can initiate formal plan amendments.  Other individuals or entities may petition the Board to imitate an amendment.  All amendments to this must adhere to the review process provided in Minnesota Statutes, section 103B.231, subdivision 11, except when the proposed amendments constitute minor amendments and:

  1. The District has held a public meeting to explain the amendments and published a legal notice of the meeting twice, at least seven days and fourteen days before the date of the meeting;
  2. The District has sent copies of the amendments to the affected local units of government, the counties (if the amendment Capital Improvement Program), the Metropolitan Council, and the state review agencies for review and comment; and
  3. BWSR has either agreed that the amendments are minor or failed to act within 45 days of receipt of the amendments.
