Rochester is entering the first phase of Destination Medical Center implementation, and to guide the building and development to come, the Rochester City Council plans to use design guidelines.
On Wednesday, the council will consider a proposal from the University of Minnesota Metropolitan Design Center to produce the DMC design guidelines.
The DMC development plan approved by the city council and the DMC Corp. Board over the summer calls for design guidelines within the boundaries of the development plan.
“The DMC development plan does have provisions related to design guidelines. Now is the time to address that as we’re just starting to get into the project implementation phase,” said Terry Spaeth, city redevelopment director.
