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. Natural resources are highly valued by Ramsey residents, and the City has taken measures to protect these resources. However, some risks to natural resources and measures to protect them are poorly understood by residents. To better communicate the value of these resources and best practices for protecting them, students in Dr. Fernando Burga’s Land Use Planning class were enlisted to inventory Ramsey's aquatic natural resources, explain potential risks to these resources from human activities, outline Ramsey’s conservation policies and best practices for protecting these resources, and quantify the economic benefit from protection. A final report is available.
Poster set completed by students enrolled in PA 5211: Land Use Planning, taught by Fernando Burga 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.
