Detailed Description

 

While there are several different plans being proposed, there is a need to interconnect all those piece parts to integrate them into the transportation framework of the DMC transportation vision:  primary function of this Transportation Plan is to provide investment guidance for DMC transit and transportation infrastructure funding.

This recognizes the need for enhanced workforce access and quality transportation options to grow a competitive, diverse, and sustainable economic center in Rochester. The transportation element of the DMC Development Plan serves as a guiding investment strategy based on sound market analysis and full integration with the 20-year DMC development program. It guides investment of DMC dollars directed to transit and transportation projects, including $116 million in State Transit Aid (approximately $47 million of which will come from Olmsted County), and public infrastructure funding to support other transportation related improvements such as streets and parking structure.

The strategy has been established to leverage DMC funding with City/County Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) funding, projects identified in the sales tax extension (approved in 2013), current and future State (MDOT)

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.
