I am looking at case studies and thought I would put this out there for recommendations from Cyburbians. I am trying to identify rural communities (under 20,000 people, but preferably smaller) that have been struggling with the need for economic development. What do they need? What have they tried? What ideas have failed to get off the ground?
I am not looking for examples of "success stories" so much as the places that have a need, want to do something about it, but have not yet figured out how to address it.
