This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. The Historic Eidem Homestead is an historic and cultural landmark in Brooklyn Park. The City was developing a new master plan for the farmstead, and wanted greater community input into the development of the plan. The goal of this project was to develop a public engagement plan for the Eidem Farm master planning process. Brooklyn Park project lead Pat Busch worked with a team of students in PA 5145: Civic Participation in Public Affairs, to better understand the target audience for the master plan, design a process to engage diverse participants in the planning process, and increase the number of visitors to the homestead. The students' final report and process diagram are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in PA 5145: Civic Participation in Public Affairs, taught by Dr. Kathy Quick 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.
