Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of a year-long partnership between the City of Rosemount and the University of Minnesota’s Resilient Communities Project (http://www.rcp.umn.edu). As the City of Rosemount Parks and Recreation Department prepared to update its master plan, the Department was interested in identifying new opportunities for community input. The goal of this project was to increase public engagement in the Department’s planning and decision-making processes. In collaboration with city project lead Dan Schultz, Parks and Recreation Director for the City of Rosemount, a team of students in PA 5145: Civic Participation in Public Affairs created a detailed plan for engaging residents in decisions regarding new investments in Rosemount’s parks and recreation system, including sample communications to residents, an Engagement Planning Worksheet, and a Community Engagement Assessment Tool to help staff manage the engagement process. A final report from the project is available.
