Resilient Communities Project (RCP), University of Minnesota
This project was completed as part of a year-long partnership between Scott County and the University of Minnesota’s Resilient Communities Project (http://www.rcp.umn.edu). The goal of this project was to identify potential sites for creating perpetually-affordable housing opportunities through a proposed Community Land Trust (CLT) program within Scott County. Scott County project lead Linda Janovsky collaborated with students in Dr. Ying Song’s course, GIS 5564, to gather data, develop selection criteria, and implement a mapping tool to identify parcels that would be key additions to a future CLT. A final student report, poster, and PowerPoint presentation slides from the project are available.
Report and poster completed by students enrolled in GIS 5564: Urban Geographic Information Systems & Analysis, taught by Dr. Ying Song in spring 2019.
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).
