Manual or Documentation
This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. Every year, the City of Brooklyn Park creates a Comprehensive Annual Finance Report (CAFR), an annual financial reporting document. The document is long and not comprehensible to the average resident. To improve financial transparency, this project was intended to create a more accessible Popular Annual Finance Report (PAFR), completed with community input. A pair of graduate students in Dr. Greg Lindsey’s PA 8081: Public Affairs Capstone workshop worked with City of Brooklyn Park project leads Korrie Johnson and Pa Thao to develop a PAFR for fiscal year 2015. The draft report, framework manual, and design manual and templates are available.
Report and framework design manual completed by students enrolled in PA 8081: Public Affairs Capstone workshop, taught by Dr. Greg Lindsey in Fall 2016.
This project was supported by the Resilient Communities Project (RCP), a program at the University of Minnesota whose mission is to connect communities in Minnesota with U of MN faculty and students to advance local sustainability and resilience through collaborative, course-based projects.
