Virtual Open House #1
The City of Rochester and Olmsted County are proposing a new roundabout for the intersection of Viola Road NE & Cassidy Drive NE. On February 10th and 15th, the project team hosted two virtual presentations to share information on project background, key objectives, existing issues, preliminary design details, and roundabout benefits. Participants were invited to share feedback via a live discussion and an online comment mapping tool. A two week comment period followed the February 15th Open House. Participants were asked to provide feedback on the proposed design using the Comment Mapping Tool.
The first open house was held virtually on February 10th at 4:30 pm and February 15th at 6:00 pm. For those unable to attend, the meetings were recorded and are posted below.
