News release on how DMC plans to get information out at the street party tomorrow:
Destination Medical Center (DMC) Tent at Thursday’s on First (ToF) August 28th
DMC returns to ToF showcasing the initiative’s latest design concepts that have been divided into six corridors.
The DMC ambassadors will be displaying the recently unveiled concepts for Rochester from 11:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. The EDA and DMCC want the community and visitors to see the latest graphics from the DMC planners and provide feedback regarding what excites or concerns them.
DMC ambassadors want the community to respond to the current designs and to give honest feedback and submit ideas or suggestions. The comment cards will be given to the DMC team and planners for further consideration.
The visuals include detailed renderings of the six proposed corridors:
• St. Mary’s Place: “The Great Room”
• Central Station: “Transit Terrace”
• Peace Plaza: “The Mayo Clinic”
• Discovery Square: “The Institutes”
• UMR & Recreation
• Downtown Waterfront: “The Gardens”
Says DMC ambassador Amanda Golden, “It’s exciting to see, from last year to this year, how DMC has gone from handwritten ideas on a white poster board to tangible concepts. If this has happened in the last 12 months, what will the next 12 months look like?”
Representatives from the DMC team will be available for interviews. To coordinate interviews at the tent please contact Al Mannino cell- 507-259-2330
The Tent will be located on First Avenue next to the RDA booth and across from Newt’s.
Ambassadors are also encouraging participants to use social media at the tent. As an incentive, participants who visit the DMC tent will receive a $1 off coupon for a fish taco at Pescara.
To learn what the planners, EDA, and DMCC propose for the six corridors, come to the fourth Public Forum meeting on September 11 @ 7pm in the Mayo Civic Center.
