 Hello:

 Thank you for participating in Destination Medical Center’s webinar: Dollars and $ense of Development Patterns.  This was the first in a series of webinars focusing on the DMC 5 Year Update to the DMC Development Plan. You can find a replay of yesterday’s webinar here.  Our team is working on responses to the questions that we could not get to during the webinar and will share those in the near future.

 There are additional webinars to join this week and in the coming weeks that each have a different focus. I’d like to invite you to join us for more discussion and input.

DMC Webinar: Downtown Rochester COVID-19 Economic Impact Analysis

Friday, October 16, 2020

12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

As part of the 5-year update to the Destination Medical Center (DMC) Development Plan, DMC commissioned HR&A Advisors to perform a scenario analysis of the potential impacts of COVID-19 on the local economy and the DMC Initiative. The results of that study will be presented at this webinar, where HR&A will discuss how COVID-19 may affect Rochester’s jobs, economic activity, and the DMC’s planning and investment strategy.

HR&A is a New York-based economic development and real estate consulting firm with significant experience developing complex economic impact models for local governments and municipalities. Since the start of the pandemic, HR&A has been working with local leaders across the country to quantify the impact of COVID-19 to support local planning and development efforts. HR&A also brings experience working in Rochester and Southeast Minnesota and understands recent regional economic and demographic trends and planning efforts.

How can Rochester imagine new ways to think about and visualize land use, urban design and economics? Urban3, an urban planning consulting firm, analyzed the public return on investment in the DMC District during Phase 1 (2015-2019) as part of the Five-Year update to the Destination Medical Center (DMC) Development Plan.

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.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
  2. Develop - program or application is being developed
  3. Plan - idea is solid, stakeholders are identified, and there is strong commitment to go forward from all parties.
  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
  5. Pre-concept Phase - an early idea or a requirement.
