ROCHESTER, Minn. – A Southern Minnesota city is looking to two different sectors to help their downtown continue to thrive.
On Thursday morning, people met for the first Art+Business=Innovation in Rochester. Dozens of people were there for the event including members of the Rochester Downtown Alliance and DMC. They talked about numerous items including the prototyping event which wrapped up in September in the med-city. It brought more than a dozen ideas on how to make downtown more vibrant and safe for people. We are told it’s events like those that officials are looking toward having in the future and they stress working together is key to getting it done.
