Senior Housing Co-design Project 


Senior housing community co-design project report message


Message From Jeremy Emmi December 14, 2021
We're excited to release the findings of the senior housing community co-design project in the attached report. The report is meant to engage and continue discussions on senior housing, not to be an end result. If you have thoughts or questions that we might explore further, related to senior housing, please reach out.
It is our hope that, in 2022, we can dive deeper on particular topics identified in the report and work with community members, builder and developers to produce new options for senior housing.

Project Background


This "compensated" engagement opportunity was presented by Jeremy Emmi at the 4/15/2021 CMRC General Meeting.  The notion is similar to Discovery Walk Co-Designing Project led by DMC EDA's Kevin Bright. There are other co-designing projects underway such as Transit Studies. Co-designing is a key element of our area's commitment toward building an America City for Health for All.

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.
