ROCHESTER, Minn. – The Destination Medical Center Board had quite a busy Thursday in Rochester.
The day began at the University of Minnesota Rochester campus where leaders learned more about what could change to the downtown area thanks to the DMC. The lead architect of the project was also on hand to talk about a numer of topics. “Really sort of a summation of what we’ve been hearing, what we’ve learning about Rochester and we are going to try and envision what all that information means by comparing the city with other successful places around the world,” Peter Cavaluzzi with Perkins Eastman said.
The DMC is a project spearheaded by the Mayo Clinic and is expected to generate 40,000 jobs over the next 20 years. Public meetings and official board meetings were held later in the day.
