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:

Measuring Sustainability in the Twin Cities Region.

Slotterback, Carissa Schively.

Sustainability indicators have been widely used in the United States and around the world to measure sustain¬ability performance in a wide range of areas, such as transportation, education, crime, health, and natural resource protection. Indicators allow for performance tracking in key sustainability areas, as well as providing an overall measure of progress toward meeting sustainability goals. Based on indicator-performance data, communities and organizations can make decisions about future planning, policy, and funding priorities. This article describes a recent effort undertaken jointly by the McKnight Foundation and the University of Minnesota to develop a sustainability-indicator system that would be meaningful for the Twin Cities region.
