Mayo Civic Center Expansion

An expansion project at the Mayo Civic Center In Rochester is expected to bring an estimated $370,000,000 into Rochester's economy.

Minnesota lawmakers approved a 2014 bonding bill that included a $35 million dollar funding for the expansion of the Mayo Civic Center.

More than one thousand jobs are expected to come with the project adding to the overall economy of the area.

According to Governor Mark Dayton, this comes just in time for the much talked about Destination Medical Center, expansion of the Mayo Clinic over several years.

The project will expand the Civic Center by 188,000 square feet. It is expected to host events and conventions from around the world.
