This project was completed as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of North St. Paul. As part of a 20-year capital improvement plan, the City of North St. Paul adopted a living streets policy. The City encountered resident resistance when attempts were made to implement living streets improvements under the policy. Project lead Paul Ammerman collaborated with students in ARCH 3250: Architecture: Community-Based Projects, to develop an interactive "Carry-On Raingarden" and "Living Streets Lab: prototypes to allow users to explore and learn about potential living streets elements and their benefits. The students' final report is available.
Report completed by students enrolled in ARCH 3250: Architecture: Community-Based Projects, taught my James Wheeler in Spring 2014.
