1. Approve Using MnDOT s Statewide Regional ITS Architecture
Mr. Pesch presented his March 22, 2019 memo explaining MnDOT s request that all MPOs adopt the Minnesota Statewide Regional ITS Architecture. The
document can be found at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/its/projects/2016-2020/itsarchitecture/implementation-volume.pdf. He gave a PowerPoint presentation describing purpose and timeline. This presentation is on-file at the Rochester-Olmsted Planning Department.
Mr. Senjem stated that it is his belief that ROCOG had the ability to talk beyond transportation. He explained that what the County will look in the
next 50 years will depend on where the roads are located and how sewers flow. Therefore, a regional approach is needed. He indicated that conversations and decisions need to be made whether an inclusive committee decides the future or if he needs to make some determinations on sewer upgrades through funding. He stated that he felt ROCOG was the correct group to have the discussions.
