We must be doing something right here in Richmond! The Baton Rouge Area Chamber of Commerce has selected Richmond as a model city for study.
BATON ROUGE, La. (February 7, 2008) – The East Baton
Rouge (EBR) City-Parish and the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC)
announced today that Richmond, Virginia has been selected as the
destination for the 2008 Canvas Workshop. A delegation of business and
community leaders will spend three days and two nights in the Richmond
area to learn from a community that has had recent success in such
areas as regional economic development, transportation, higher
education/research and development, downtown revitalization, and public
education. Trips similar to the Canvas Workshop series are taken by
many groups around the country as a tool for gaining insights and
sparking new ideas for their communities. (per a press release from the Baton Rouge Area Chamber of Commerce)
Thanks to richyb83 from UrbanPlanet.org for the heads-up!

Maybe they can learn from our mistakes as well.
Touche, Paul! Hopefully we can do the same thing with our own successes and failures.
