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. Ramsey is fortunate to have several public parks for residents to use, but not all residents have the same level of access to these parks. Students in Dr. Mae Davenport’s Sustainable Land Use Planning and Policy course identified key principles to guide sustainable land use planning (community connectivity, ecological connectivity, and equity and accessibility), and reported results from a pilot survey administered to Ramsey residents regarding their perceptions of natural areas in Ramsey, and their access to and use of parks and open space in the community. Based on these preliminary results, students made recommendations and an action plan for how to best move forward with park and trail planning. A final report and presentation are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in ESPM 5245: Sustainable land Use Planning and Policy, taught by Mae Davenport 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.
