The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Gull Lake Micropolitan Pilot Area: Planning Terms and Definition Research.

Piekarski, Amy.

The Gull Lake Micropolitan Pilot Area Planning Terms and Definitions Research project was used to create a list of common terms and definitions to be used throughout the six local government units. Ordinances and plans were gathered from the six local units of government and the Department of Natural Resources, and then terms and definitions were extracted and put into a database. By creating a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet the data was easily organized and analyzed. Once all the data was input, those terms that seems most valuable to have common throughout the pilot area were separated out and made into a word document. This draft version of terms was then submitted to the representatives of the six local units of government for their suggestions and approval.
