What Happens after Environmental Review? A Review of the Implementation of AUAR Mitigation.

Schively, Carissa.

This article examines the challenges and opportunities associated with implementing the outcomes of local-level environmental review, focusing specifically on the alternative urban areawide review (AUAR), and increasingly important environmental review tool in Minnesota. The article presents the results of a study of the implementation of environmental review outcomes in selected communities in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, documenting the varying approaches and tools communities use to carry out mitigation efforts. Communities included in the analysis were Stillwater, Maple Grove, Eden Prairie, Minneapolis, and Hutchinson. The article concludes with several recommendations related to agency guidelines and community use of the AUAR tool.
