ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Mayor Ardell Brede outlined his plans for Rochester in 2014 at a meeting at the Government Center on Wednesday.
Besides the Mayo Clinic DMC initiative, Brede expressed his intentions to secure state bonding funds for the expansion of Mayo Civic Center. The 81-million dollar project is just one of several included in the city's plans for this year.
Also on the agenda for 2014: expanding Highway 14 to four lanes from Dodge Center to Owatonna, a pilot program for Latino students at Riverside School, and a new effort led by the Mayor to make Rochester a more compassionate city.
"We have strong neighborhoods, places of work, spirituality and education," said Brede. "This will be a year-long effort requiring leadership in all of those areas, but also by the City Council and the mayor."
Also Wednesday night, the City Council announced it will update the city's land use plan as well as the downtown master plan. The mayor ended his address by announcing he will be running for Mayor again this year.
