The Destination Medical Center continues to move forward, and on Thursday, Rochester Mayor Ardell Brede said it might have taken a big step.
DMC, which is backed by Mayo Clinic and the state of Minnesota, is expected to transform areas of Rochester and add up to 40,000 jobs over the next two decades.
One of the sections expected to be worked on is called “The Heart of the City” which is located near Peace Plaza.
Mayor Brede says the city is putting together an advisory committee made up of nine to 12 people to help guide the project. Their job will include getting proposals from companies and possibly making suggestions to the City Council.
Brede says it’s time to start acting on DMC.
“I think people are getting a little antsy including maybe myself as well. I know it’s a 20-year plan, but we should start seeing some activity,” he said.
