I have found that I really enjoy living in a rural setting where the city problems of long commutes are not present. Problem is, how can a small city in North Central Iowa that has declined over the last couple of decades, attract young professionals?
I think that a regional entertainment concept plan is the way to go. My thought is that the small towns that surround the big towns can specialize in certain types of entertainment niches. One town offers a certain type of music; another has an independent movie theater, etc.
Has anyone seen a regional entertainment plan for a rural area?
