Everything's Coming Up Rosemount

flash_largeimagecrop_rosemount2 (1).jpg
The city of Rosemount has spring in its step -- and not just because of the change of seasons.  Just a short drive south of the Twin Cities, this fast-growing community was chosen as next year's partner in the University of Minnesota's Resilient Communities Project, an Institute on the Environment-supported program. 

RCP organizes yearlong partnerships between the University and Minnesota communities. The partnership will bring the expertise of hundreds of graduate students to sustainability-related projects identified by Rosemount city staff and community partners. Development of open space and public amenities and enhancing pride of place are some of the projects the city hopes to tackle with the help of the University's sustainability expertise.

The community of North St. Paul is working toward some ambitious goals with the help of University of Minnesota faculty and students, including attracting more residents and visitors to an area nature preserve and addressing the issue of an aging population growing old in aging housing stock as part of this year's Resilient Communities Project. The initiative was recently featured on the University's "Discover" page. Read the feature story by Rick Moore, University Relations writer and editor.

The Resilient Communities Project, a program of the Institute on the Environment and the Center for Urban Regional Affairs, is a year-long partnership that connects a Minnesota community with University of Minnesota expertise to tackle community-identified sustainability projects. If your community wishes to partner with RCP for the 2014-15 academic year, apply by Feb. 14.
