MDT Eyota Visit – April 14-16, 2016
Ever visited Eyota, Minnesota, located only 15 minutes east of Rochester on Highway 14. It is the only city named Eyota in the entire United States! It evolved as a train town along the Winona and St. Peter Railroad, and now there is tremendous growth projected for the city from both the city of Rochester and Olmsted County. Eyota has funding available for projects and has a very motivated leadership who sees the value in bringing the community together in a coordinated effort to chart their future long range plan.
Some specific challenges they hope to tackle (and where we need MDT expertise) are:
- Main Street revitalization (design and economic development).
- Connecting local and regional bicycle networks.
- How to better activate open space.
How they might best coordinate city owned land in the development of a community center. Team leaders are Adam Fulton, Paul Mogush and Adam Ferrari, AIA.
