Metro District Preliminary Design

Metro District Layout Approval Committee

The Metro District Layout Approval Committee (LAC) reviews layouts as part of the staff approval process for the Metro District. The roles and responsibilities of the committee are:

  • To review all layouts generated by Metro District for content and consistency standards and to recommend revisions. They are also to review layouts generated by consultants and local agencies.
  • To recommend approval of the layouts generated by Metro District to the District Resource Engineer (the person approving the layouts for the district)
  • To track approved layouts by Metro District and maintain an ongoing database
  • Meet as needed


The LAC meets every other Wednesday. Layouts and the proper Metro District Layout Checklist must be submitted by the previous Thursday morning to be included in the LAC meeting. Any submittals after Thursday morning will be include in the next LAC meeting.

The LAC does not preclude the need for review by other MnDOT units. Consult the MnDOT Project Manager as to which units need to be included in the layout review process for the project.
