Education, Health and Recreation Space (DMC UMR/Rec sub-district)

Beam Project Type: Planning     Project in Concept Phase

This sub-district incorporates UMR's Master Plan and the northern edge of Soldier's Field as an anchoring element to the DMC Development District and strategies for growth. This sub-district integrates and urban college campus and recreational uses into the district, thereby creating another catalyst for the growth of retail, entertainment and residential uses in the downtown. It is anticipated that UMR will have its first building built in this area before the end of the first phase of the DMC implementation process.

April 23, 2016 TBD: How do we get from Today to Tomorrow for DMC Education/Rec Sub-district ?

Who is in charge of planning and building out the Education/Recreation (UMR/Recreation) space? Is it UMR, Rochester Area Family Y (which is undertaking a strategic market study),  or some other entity?  The attached PB article would imply no one seems to be. How about DMC, Rochester City and Olmsted County leaders sponsor an ER advisory group? 

This suggestion was brought forward to DMCC board in its 4/18/2016 meeting (see video see video archive @9 min).

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
