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:

Transit-Oriented Development Parking Recommendations: City of Minnetonka, Minnesota.

Christopherson, Kate, James M. Shoemaker, BrieAnna Simon, Alex Zhang

Produced by students in PA 8202: Networks and Places (Instructor Jason Cao, Humphrey School of Public Affairs) as part of the 2012-2013 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of Minnetonka. 

This report is one of five reports produced by students in this course, each addressing a different aspect of a larger project described below. The CURA publications call numbers assigned to these reports are RCP-023 through RCP-027.

The City of Minnetonka’s zoning ordinance establishes minimum parking standards for land uses, which can often result in excess parking that reduces land values, creates increased stormwater runoff, and inhibits infill and compact development. This project reviewed the city’s existing parking regulations, explored innovative parking management strategies in the literature, reviewed local and national best practices, computed average parking demand, and recommended updates to the city’s parking ordinance. The project also included a GIS analysis for Minnetonka of the number of jobs vs. number of parking spaces provided by businesses in several key employment/village center locations and calculated the peak parking demand in these locations to inform updates to the parking code.
