Join Minnesota Design Center Director Tom Fisher and Destination Medical Center’s Patrick Seeb for a discussion of how cities could emerge from the disruption of COVID-19 with a stronger regional economy and a more equitable and sustainable built environment.
The pandemic has accelerated changes in retail, work and mobility, and if we start now to think about what those changes might mean for Rochester, MN and begin steering them, the “new normal” could be a better outcome.
