This project was completed as part of the 2017-2018 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of Ramsey. The COR, the city’s mixed-use, transit-oriented development along the Northstar Commuter Rail Corridor, was intended as a vibrant destination in the community, with a variety of uses of varying intensities within walking distance of each other. With less than half of The COR currently developed, Ramsey staff will soon be updating The COR development plan, and wanted assistance identifying appropriate strategies for including the public in the plan update processS. tudents in Dr. Dan Milz’s Planning and Participation Processes class reviewed the literature on public engagement around a planned development, researched case studies of engagement efforts around similar developments in other communities, and recommended key strategies for Ramsey to consider for engaging residents around development of The COR. The students’ final report and poster are available.
