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:

Hawthorne Zoning Disposition Project.

Minneapolis Neighborhood Information System.

The Minneapolis Community Development Agency (MCDA) proposed a changed to its Lot Disposition Policy that appeared to affect only a handful of the neighborhoods in Minneapolis and limited their input in the decision making process. Hawthorne Area Community Council sought to demonstrate the impact on these neighborhoods through the use of demographic, crime, and housing data. Data collected from the Census Bureau, the City of Minneapolis, and the MCDA were incorporated into charts and maps that revealed the neighborhoods most impacted by the proposed policy were those with a high minority population, high crime rate, high poverty, and low parkland.
