The most significant infrastructure proposal I’m putting forward with Mayor Kleis and other local officials is an overall $100 million investment in revitalizing the downtown, aimed at addressing shortcomings in the housing supply, parking, greenspace, walkability, and riverfront access. Another project proposal is the $12.9 million for CentraCare’s medical school campus, which, in partnership with the University of Minnesota, would construct this new facility.
Now is the time to revitalize downtown St. Cloud for generations to come. By investing in a new medical school, and our downtown, we will increase access to healthcare, enhance public safety, improve walkability, create more access to the Mississippi River, generate more housing, and bolster economic development.
