Live Blog — City of Rochester Presentation to DMCC Board

Rochester City Council President Randy Staver reported the city’s continued support and participation in DMC and excitement over collaboration to implement the DMC Development Plan.

Among the City Council’s recent recommendations is the hiring of a project management firm to help coordinate implementation among the City of Rochester, Olmsted County, State of Minnesota, Mayo Clinic, DMC Corporation Board of Directors and the DMC Economic Development Agency.

The City plans to issue a request for proposals (RFP) to sometime before the end of September, Staver said.

Rochester City Council President Randy Staver highlighted the DMC Corporation board’s mention of the Rochester International Airport, whose leadership already has expressed interest in developing along with Rochester and DMC.

The airport is a jewel of our community and should be considered key to development of DMC.
