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:

Longfellow Community Council Lead Exposure Risk Analysis.

Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System.

The Longfellow Community, like most residential neighborhoods in Minneapolis, has a high percentage of homes built before 1950, as well as old industrial properties, and high-traffic transportation corridors. These are just some of the risk indicators that are known sources of lead exposure risk in children. Longfellow Community used four indicators including Census data showing concentrations of children, building condition, age of housing, and proximity to transportation corridors to assess lead exposure risk. GIS was used to map the at-risk areas based on perceived level of risk using the above named criteria.

Prepared on behalf of Longfellow Community Council by the Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System (MNIS), administered by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs at the University of Minnesota.
