About the Rural Design Workshop

With assistance from the University of Minnesota’s Center for Rural Design, Scott County Community Development hosted a rural design workshop in December 2008. Focusing on the DAP study area, the purpose of the workshop was to provide an opportunity for residents to consider the study area’s unique landscape features and help prioritize rural development design guidelines related to future development.

Roughly 40 people attended the rural design workshop and provided feedback on the value of rural character and key design principles. Below, you can read a report from the Center for Rural Design that summarizes the workshop, provides recommendations for future action, and contains a number of graphics and images from the workshop.
