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:

Growth Management in the Twin Cites Region. The Politics and Performance of the Metropolitan Council.

Johnson, William C.

The Metropolitan Council was created in 1967 to guide the growth of the Twin Cities metropolitan areas and assure that the necessary public facilities would be in place to serve it. This study examines the thirty-year record to learn what has been accomplished in the realms of land use and housing. It reports that the system's achievement has been impressive in the national context although not meeting the expectations of all observers. Further, the author finds that the Metropolitan Council operates in the midst of a web of political influence that both supports many of its current efforts and restrains them.
