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:

City of Forest Lake Sustainability Action Plan.

Aultman, Sara Breakiron, Brant Birkeland, Kirti Vardhan Das, Sean Flannerty, Kate Meyer, and Julie Quinn.

Having recently completed updates to its comprehensive plan, including a new Sustainability Element, the City of Forest Lake decided to integrate sustainability concerns into its planning and regulatory framework. Students in a capstone workshop in urban planning at the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs taught by Dr. Carissa Schively Slotterback developed a sustainability action plan focused on policies, ordinances, projects, incentives, processes, and other implementation tools that the city could use to address sustainability. Graduate students and city staff developed a sustainability plan that has now been adopted by the city council, and that will guide implementation of sustainability goals in Forest Lake. The plan serves as a model for other communities interested in establishing a planning framework and innovative policies for addressing sustainability.
