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:

Frogtown as a model for innovative vacant land management: Health, economic, and ecological effects of improving access to parks

Priestly, Kevin

Frogtown Green is a resident-led advocacy group that protects and maintains neighborhood green spaces as well as promotes sustainable, healthy, and creative development with-in District 7. By creating and protecting Frogtown’s green spaces Frogtown Green gives the community a unique opportunity to emerge from its dire economic circumstances and to re-build itself as a lively and sustainable community. This project will report on alternative and sustainable uses of vacant land in Frogtown that will bring a boost to the community. A student researcher will need to (1) collect data specifically relating to the Frogtown population, (2) produce a final report that recommends sites for future parks and green space locations, as well as appropriate and adequate amenities for those places.
