Lunda Center, Western Technical College

La Crosse, Wisconsin


Our first Executive Briefing for all 7Rivers Alliance members and community leaders will be Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 2pm at Lunda Center, Western Technical College.  We have invited representatives from Mayo Health Systems, Rochester to provide an overview of the Destination Medical Center Plan. This is the project that recently received conditional funding from the Minnesota Legislature with a cap of $6 billion. The presentation will be followed by a discussion of the regional implications for this project that is slated to create thousands of new jobs. It is also a good model to study as we consider a long range plan for the 7 Rivers region.
