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:

Adapting the Community Capitals Framework

Lykes Frostman, Carly

The Saint Paul District Councils represent a diverse group of neighborhoods, yet all are tasked by the City with the same mission of fostering participation and communication, and ensuring the inclusion of all community members. Faced with great challenges and limited resources, the District Councils collaborate on a number of projects related to their shared interests and efforts to serve their communities.

In the summer of 2014, the District Councils completed a project that assessed their current evaluation landscape and explored ways to better demonstrate their impact on their communities. As part of the study, District Council staff participated in a facilitated impact mapping session based on the Community Capitals Framework (CCF). This session introduced the group to evaluation techniques and produced a visual representation of their work.

District Council staff initiated the current project to build on findings of the previous study. The CCF and impact mapping are used to identify key areas for evaluation and potential indicators.
