Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. North Hennepin Community College is interested in developing a portion of their land to support privately owned affordable housing, particularly for students of the college. Students in Jennifer Blevins’s Advanced Community Practice: Assessment, Organizing, and Advocacy class administered surveys to community members living in the adjacent neighborhoods to better understand their attitudes towards the project. Most residents were supportive of the proposed development and identified price as a primary focus of the development. The students’ final report and presentation are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in SW 8551: Advanced Community Practice: Assessment, Organizing, and Advocacy, taught by Jennifer Blevins in spring 2017.
