Sustainability a Key Component of DMC Development

With the formal adoption of the DMC Development Plan, it’s time to start building and investing in southeastern Minnesota. But construction and development takes energy—and lots of it.

Local residents and board members, alike, articulated a commitment to progressing through the yet-undefined projects in an environmentally friendly and sustainable way.

DMCC Board member and former Minneapolis mayor, R.T. Rybak, said projects and development should maximize and conserve resources within the region and state. While the DMCC Board can set policy and express its goals for development, it’s equally important for members of the public to continue promoting their desire for a sustainable future for Rochester and DMC.

We’re about to consume a whole lot of energy from Southern Minnesota … and I think this is a very important topic for discussion.
