April 23, 2016 : 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.

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 will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community,'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. could be an interesting first step.
