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 in Minnetonka: Case and Policy Recommendations for TOD Implementation in Minnetonka, Minnesota.

Creed, Jon, Joe Giant , David Thorpe, David White.

Produced by students in PA 8081: Land Use and Transportation Capstone Workshop (Instructor Mike Greco, Humphrey School of Public Affairs) as part of the 2012-2013 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of Minnetonka. 

Minnetonka is beginning station-area planning efforts for two proposed stations along the Southwest Light-Rail Transit Line and has just participated a sector analysis of public transit in the city, and was interested in developing transit‐oriented zoning district models for the major station areas and future transit hubs in the community. Students developed detailed policy-oriented case studies of TOD districts in similar cities, including how the municipality was involved in (re)development projects; recommended model districts for station areas and transit hubs in Minnetonka, including appropriate transportation connections, land-use mixes, zoning regulations, and parking requirements; and recommended guidelines for the city’s financial and policy role in future redevelopment projects in these locations.
