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 on the Fringe: Commuter Links in the Twin Cities and Beyond.

Wyly, Elvin K. and John S. Adams.

In the last several decades, the Twin Cities metropolitan area has evolved into a complex, multicentered system where people's paths between home and work create ever more intricate patterns. The number of commuters crossing county boundaries on their way to work has tripled in the last thirty years. Boundaries among urban, suburban, and exurban communities are blurring. This increasing interdependency is at odds with traditional perceptions of the city. It challenges us to find innovative ways of planning for the new complexity.
