Latest DMC Press Release
May 9, 2022 – ROCHESTER, MINN. – The City of Rochester and Destination Medical Center (DMC) are inviting the community to a Walking Tour and Ice Cream Social on Saturday, May 14 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. The tour will begin at the City/County Parking Lot at 401 4 St SE and will conclude near the former Legends site on the west side of the river.
Self-guided tours can be taken at any time to gain an understanding of the sites at the various learning stations. Three guided tours are scheduled for 12:30, 1:30, and 2:30. The tour is designed to carry participants to both sites included in the Riverfront Small Area Plan to see how these central waterfront properties can be developed into a people-centric place that leverages downtown Rochester’s unique assets and helps to reestablish our community’s relationship with the Zumbro River. This is a family-friendly activity.
“The goal of the Ice Cream Social Walking Tour is to invite everyone to these spaces and help them to realize the potential of each space beyond surface parking,” said Project Manager Jaymi Wilson. “The tour will give everyone another opportunity to share their thoughts on what the future of these sites could be.”
The Walking Tour and Ice Cream Social are the latest in a series of community engagement tools guiding the Riverfront Small Area Plan to develop a market-supported vision for the downtown waterfront to link together several civic, cultural, and government assets to the heart of downtown Rochester. The process has included a public comment period, involved community co-designers, as well as a five-part virtual ‘Riverfront Talks’ series.

Five-Year Update to the DMC Development Plan
Forward: Creating Rochester’s Future
In 2020, the Destination Medical Center Corporation Board and City of Rochester approved a 5-year update to the DMC Development Plan, which was adopted in 2015 and provides a framework for implementing the mission of the DMCC to transform Rochester, Minnesota as a global destination for health and wellness.
The purpose of the 5-year update, which is required by state statute, is to tailor economic development strategies to market conditions, to account for how DMC catalyzed for economic growth from 2015-2019 and to gather community input.
The Destination Medical Center Corporation serves as the governing board responsible for providing oversight and ensuring that planning and implementation of the DMC initiative supports the legislative intent and public purpose as defined in the statute.
The non-profit DMC Economic Development Agency (EDA) is a private economic development corporation authorized by the DMC statute to provide services to the DMC Corporation.
