ROCHESTER, Minn. - Transportation impacts everyone's daily routine but continues to contribute to pollution and climate damage.

Now the Med City is hoping it can "go green" when it comes to getting around, which is why residents are brainstorming the old-fashioned way, with paper and markers to talk about how they can clean up transportation as it expands.

"If Rochester wants to present itself to the world as a destination, having a world-class transportation system would go a long way to help that image," Steve monk said.

Minnesota-350, Sierra Club and Communities United for Rochester were just some of the organizations that participated in the event.
