" ........

Rochester could become the first U.S. city to join the Intercultural City Initiative, an opportunity Brede said he would this year present to the city council.

"We would be joining more than 60 cities in Europe, Israel, Japan, Korea, Mexico and Canada providing measurable progress toward a vision of a more inclusive, cohesive and equitable city supporting a strong and diverse economy," Brede said.

J2G D&I Committee meeting with Mayo Brede December 4, 2015

Meeting was at the mayor's office on December 4, 2015,  8:30.  Mayor Brede, Randy Staver, Barbra Jordan, Rebeca Sedarski, Torres Hodges, Duane Sauke, Melissa Brinkman in attendance. 

Presentation of the project was followed by the direct ask for financial support.  Some clarifying questions were asked by Mr Staver and Mayor Brede.  This led to the unresolved concern about the ongoing staffing of the initiative. 

We presented a 5 year expenditure plan that included the initial support of $10,000 followed by annual costs of $7000 per year. 

Structure of support was $10000 initial payment from the city and 5 years of annual support at a reduced donation. 

Proposal included a commitment by the committee to secure additional support agencies to participate in the annual payments.   Meeting adjourned with the the general acceptance that the mayor and president supported the structure and process.  They would investigate and secure commitment from the city administration and council.

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

  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept

  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
