South-of-Downtown Waterfront Small Area Plan

In Rochester's most recent comprehensive plan, adopted in 2018, the South-of-Downtown Waterfront Small Area was identified for revitalization due to its proximity to the downtown, frontage along the Zumbro River, and the presence of large tracts of underutilized property. The City of Rochester felt that it would be beneficial to work with stakeholders, including DMC EDA to prepare a collaborative that that represents a shared vision of the Project Area.

About 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.
