ALBERT LEA, Minn. — It’s a historic cornerstone for downtown Albert Lea.

Now, folks are being asked to give their ideas on the future of Freeborn Bank and Jacobson Apartment buildings.

The city has been working over the past years to fill them and since the plans fell through, city leaders want to hear from you.

They will be holding a meeting to generate ideas and gather input.

“Give us there thoughts on what they would like to see in that building, those buildings,” City Manager Chad Adams said. “But, also the downtown as well too. You recognize that this is a signature building in the downtown and be a key component to the success of the downtown in the future.”

So far, the city has hosted eight forums around the community.

The next public forum will be held Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. in the first floor of the Freeborn Bank building.
