Housing Framework

Published in February 2014, the Maxfield study found that the vacancy rate for affordable senior rentals was 0.8 percent in December, compared to a 4.6 percent vacancy in senior market rate housing. To meet the anticipated demand, the report suggests that an average of 126 affordable senior housing units need to be built annually through 2020, compared to the average of 8 units a year that were added from 2006 to 2012. The demand for market rate senior housing is expected to go from adding 16 units a year to an average of 251 a year. Many such projects are already under construction or in the pipeline for coming years.

  • 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.
