Detailed Description

Need a system and process to manage and track various formal community inputs to DMC and the City to build a "Community for Health".
The following was presented to DMC Board in its April 23, 2015 public forum:
There is a need for a social system to ensure:
  1. Policies that bring potential health and social impacts into the decision-making process.
  2. Project approval criteria that evaluate the potential health and social impacts of a project before it is built.
  3. Metrics that gauge progress toward positive health and social outcomes that promote and sustain an inclusive and healthy community.

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.
