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 blessed with an abundance of rivers, lakes, and wetlands, which provide many ecological benefits, but also bring the risk of periodic flooding and potential damage to property and infrastructure. Ramsey currently lacks the resources to easily explain to landowners the risks of flooding and steps to avoid property damage from floods. Students in Dr. Dan Milz’s Planning and Participation Processes class worked to develop materials that help explain flooding risks in Ramsey, how residents and businesses may be impacted, and what they can do to reduce risks and prepare for flooding. A final report and poster are available.
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.
