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 employ the Cost of Community Services (COCS) method to Scott County to understand fiscal impacts of various development decisions in the county. Scott County project lead Brad Davis collaborated with Ph.D. candidate Terin Mayer, with assistance from Dr. Jerry (Zhirong) Zhao, to review previous COCS studies and develop a blueprint for conducting a study in Scott County. A project memo outlining key findings is available.
Report completed by a student enrolled in PA 5113: State and Local Public Finance, taught by Dr. Jerry (Zhirong) Zhao 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). More information at http://www.rcp.umn.edu.
