EXCERPT: “Will Fillmore County be prepared to provide affordable housing during a period which will likely see job growth in the area? Both Destination Medical Center and the potential veterans home in Preston could provide jobs that encourage economic growth and increase housing demand in the region. DMC will likely provide some demand for housing in Fillmore County, especially for workers who prefer living outside of the city. Workers will weigh the higher dollar cost of housing in Rochester against the cost of travel and time if they choose to live in a smaller town. The DMC initiative kicked off in 2013 seeks to make Rochester a hub for medical education, research, and innovation. It is expected to drive growth providing over a couple of decades an additional 25,000 to 35,000 jobs. Most of the development will be in a 10 to 12 block radius in downtown Rochester.” FULLSTORY: http://bit.ly/2M16Q8H
