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:

Up to the Lake: Treaty Rights and Lakeshore Property Values.

Anding, Thomas L.

Will the restoration of hunting, fishing, and gathering rights to the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe cause property values to plummet on Mille Lacs Lake? This 1997 study of lakeshore property values on four Minnesota lakes--Mille Lacs, Leech, Borden, and Smith--between 1990 and 1995 demonstrates that property values increased with almost identical changes for the lakes involved in the Treaty of 1837 (Mille Lacs and Smith) as for those not involved (Leech and Borden). It seems that larger market forces than the treaty rights debate are affecting the value of lakeshore property. Local assessors suggest that it is the baby boomers buying recreational land that is driving the market.
