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:

Comparative Housing Market Analysis: Minnetonka and Surrounding Communities

Huonder, Mark, Eric King, Katie Knoblauch, Xiaoxu Tang.

Produced by students in HSG 5464: Understanding Housing Assessment and Analysis (Instructor Jessica Deegan, Design, Housing and Apparel) as part of the 2012-2013 Resilient Communities Project partnership with the City of Minnetonka. 

According to a recent Opportunity Cities study of Minnetonka conducted by the Urban Land Institute/Regional Council of Mayors (ULI/RCM), Minnetonka does well meeting its regional affordable housing targets and has an adequate supply of higher-end housing. However, the city also has an aging housing stock and a lack of mid-priced housing that might appeal to empty-nesters looking to downsize or young families and professionals interested in move-up housing. City staff wanted to better understand the market for mid-priced housing in Minnetonka and neighboring communities to inform future efforts to increase the amount of mid-priced housing in the city. Using American Community Survey data, foreclosure data, market price decline data, and other available data, student teams conducted a GIS housing market analysis of Minnetonka and surrounding communities where residential “market leakage” from Minnetonka is occurring.

This report is one of three produced by students for this project. Reports have CURA publication call numbers RCP-029, RCP-030 and RCP-031.
