This project was completed as part of the 2016-2017 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Brooklyn Park. When it comes to foreclosures, the City of Brooklyn Park has various efforts to aid in the property’s recovery. Despite their efforts, residents still perceive foreclosed homes as being dangerous by attracting crime. Students in Dr. Edward Goetz’s Housing Policy class helped the city analyze the efficacy of their foreclosure recovery efforts. The students compared Brooklyn Park’s programs to those of other cities, and offered recommendations for creating a more effective program. The students’ final report, poster, and presentation are available.
Report, poster, and presentation completed by students enrolled in PA 5261: Housing Policy, taught by Ed Goetz and Tony Damiano in spring 2017.
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. RCP is a program of the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
