Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of the 2013-2014 Resilient Communities Project (rcp.umn.edu) partnership with the City of North St. Paul. To be recognized as a Step 3 city in the GreenStep cities program, the City of North St. Paul was looking to develop new policies around sustainability. Project lead Paul Ammerman partnered with a student in Jean Coleman’s LAW 7012: Land Use, Energy and Environment Clinic to develop policy recommendations. The student provided a definition of sustainability and drafted a sample resolution to adopt a sustainability definition. The final report and presentation are available.
Report and presentation completed by students enrolled in LAW 7012: Land Use, Energy and Environment Clinic, taught by Jean Coleman in spring 2014.
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.
