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:

Dayton Mississippi River Trail.

Shively, Emily and John Workman.

The City of Dayton recently completed its first Parks, Trails, and Open Space Plan. The city requested assistance refining the plan to facilitate implementation. Graduate students in landscape architecture and urban and regional planning refined a trail alignment along the Mississippi River that will link several existing parks, the community's historic district, and the regional Elm Creek Park Reserve, as well as create connections to a proposed countywide trail and to the future Elk River commuter rail station. In this report, the students identified implementation mechanisms for the plan, as well as funding opportunities and requirements in conjunction with the National Park Service's centennial celebration in 2016, one goal of which is to create a continuous trail system along the entire length of the Mississippi River by the centennial.
