Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2015-2016 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with Carver County. Carver County Public Health was beginning a process of developing healthy community strategic plans for several manufactured home parks in Carver County. The goal of this project was to develop an engagement strategy for the Public Health Department to deploy as part of this planning process. Carver County project lead Tami LaGow collaborated with students in PA 5253: Designing Planning and Participation Processes, to develop a set of engagement recommendations. The team focused on one manufactured home park, Riverview Terrace in the city of Chaska, and recommended that the public health department consider past barriers to engagement, use a trusted-advocate model to engage residents, address health disparities, and co-develop the strategic plan with residents. The students' final report is available.
Report completed by students enrolled in PA 5253: Designing Planning & Participation Processes, taught by Dr. Carissa Slotterback in fall 2015.
