(a) In a state planning region or subregion in which a commission has been organized,
the governing body of a governmental unit within the region or subregion, whether
or not a member of the commission, shall submit to the commission for review and comment
an application for a loan or grant-in-aid from a state agency, and from a federal
agency if the project is one for which the federal government requires review and
comment by an areawide planning agency, before the application is filed with the state
or federal government.
(b) For federally aided projects for which an areawide review is required by federal
law or regulation, the commission shall review the application from the standpoint
of consistency with regional plans and other considerations as specified in federal
or state regulations and shall enter its comments on the application and return it
to the originating governmental unit.
(c) For other federally aided projects and for state-aided projects, the commission
shall advise the governmental unit on whether the proposed project for which funds
are requested has regionwide significance.
(d) If the proposed project has regionwide significance, the commission shall determine
whether it is in conflict with a regional plan or policy. It may consider whether the proposed project is properly coordinated with other
existing or proposed projects within the region. The commission shall record on the application its view and comments, transmit the
application to the originating governmental unit, and send a copy to the concerned
federal or state agency.
(e) If the proposed project does not have regionwide significance, the commission
shall certify that it is not in conflict with a regional plan or policy.
