The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Woodland Cove Development Scenarios.

Pearson, Shawn.

Minnetrista contains a 488-acre parcel on Lake Minnetonka characterized by 8,000 feet of shoreline, significant forest and habitat area, and unique topographical features. Development of the site is made more challenging by access issues, environmental protection efforts, and density requirements established by the Metropolitan Council. The City is currently working with a consulting firm to rewrite its planned-unit development ordinance and to articulate a set of public values to guide negotiations with developers who seek to develop under this ordinance. A graduate student in urban and regional planning provided an analysis of various development alternatives for the Lake Minnetonka site using CommunityViz to help the city visualize the results of emphasizing certain public values over others on this parcel.
