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:

Costs of Regulation: Home Builders, Developers and the Maze of Government Review.

Shippee, B. Warner.

A year-long study of the regulatory processes that local, regional, state, and federal governments have created as controls on residential development is presented here. The article discusses the regulatory picture in Minnesota in 1982 and details the additional costs that accrue to the home buyer as a result of local fees, delays, and uncertainties in the home building process.
