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:

Reusing the Arsenal: How the University was Involved in the Planning Process.

Bjelland, Mark D.

With the end of the Cold War, the U.S. military has begun closing unneeded bases. In 1991 the U.S. Army declared the arsenal in Arden Hills unneeded and a process for returning its four square miles to community use began. Portions of the land are highly contaminated with toxic chemicals while other sections have been relatively undisturbed and retain upland forests, wetlands, and prairie that are home to some wildlife and waterfowl now rare in the Twin Cities. A number of municipalities and community groups developed plans for the reuse of this land.
