Sun Nguyen, Adam Wellstead, Nancy Langston and Micheal Howlett recently published, “Mining the evidence: Public comments and evidence-based policymaking in the controversial Minnesota PolyMet mining project”.
Don Lafreniere (SS/GLRC) along with colleagues Dayne Walling (U Minnesota) and Rick Sadler (Michigan State) presented a paper entitled “Rust Belt Cities as Exemplars for Urban Development Practice in a Low-Growth Future” at the International Seminar on Urban Form.
The paper outlines how slow- or no-growth communities in the American Rust Belt have responded to the socio-spatial processes shaping land use, development, and revitalization despite a long history of racial segregation and political fragmentation. The paper highlights the importance of community groups and civic networks in responding to these challenges in depopulating urban regions.

Shan Zhou co-authored the article, “Collaboration mitigates barriers of utility ownership on policy adoption: evidence from the United States”, published in the Journal of Environmental Planning and Management.
This paper offers an answer to the question: “To what extent does collaboration between utilities and local governments influence energy policy adoption?” Cross-sectional data from the United States–focused Integrated City Sustainability Database (ICSD) are used to investigate the degree that specific city attributes and state policy influence the creation of city-scale energy policy.
