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:

Envision North St. Paul: Engaging Underrepresented Participants In Response to the Request By the City of North Saint Paul.

Johnson, Wesley, Suadi Abdi, Tony Damiano, David Kowen.

Produced by students in PA 5253: Designing Participation Processes, fall 2013 (Instructor Carissa Schively Slotterback, Humphrey School of Public Affairs) as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Partnership with the City of North St. Paul. 

Strong communities are built on strong neighborhoods. The City would like to build on existing neighborhood crime watch organizations to engage and empower neighborhood residents to keep their neighborhoods safe, livable, and vibrant, while developing a clearer sense of who they are as a neighborhood. The goal of the project is to improve community livability, strengthen social ties within North Saint Paul, enhance public safety, and create a sense of pride among residents in their neighborhood and the larger community.

A graduate-level Urban Planning course in public participation processes developed a generalized engagement strategy for unengaged or underrepresented populations in the city, including a process for getting residents engaged in neighborhood and community issues. This report was created by 1 of 2 teams in the course. The proposal from the second team is CURA report call number RCP-041.
