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:

Attracting Workers to Live Closer to Their Place of Employment: Columbia Heights, Minnesota.

Minnesota 3-D.

The city of Columbia Heights was looking to expand residential opportunities through new residential developments in their city. To market these new developments appropriately and effectively, one goal was to attract outer-ring suburbanites to Columbia Heights as an alternative to considerable commute times. This project was completed to determine who, where, and how many residents commute from Twin Cities northwest suburbs to work in downtown Minneapolis. Zip code areas were used in the analysis to connect areas with the greatest commuters to marketing mailing efforts. The M3D data compiled for this project indicate that nearly 9,000 commuters travel through Columbia Heights to their place of downtown employment.
