Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2017-2018 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Ramsey. The City was beginning the process of updating its Comprehensive Plan, including the natural resources component, and wanted to develop innovative strategies to communicate the value of natural resources to residents. Students in Dr. Dan Milz’s Planning and Participation Processes class identified opportunities to expand public outreach at community events, to community stakeholders, and to established institutions/groups through three key strategies: expanding the scope of the City's existing Environmental Policy Board, using strategic education tools, and creating a frequently asked questions (FAQ) page for developers on the City’s website. A final report and poster are available.
Final report and poster completed by students enrolled in PA 5253:Planning and Participation Processes, taught by Dan Milz in fall 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 community 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.
