    Great article. I think that not only do the city goverments play a big role here but so do the individual cities businesses. For example, e3bank (a client of mine in the Philadelphia area) believes strongly in community as one of its guiding principles. They think globally but act locally by supporting local business. Their site sums it up pretty nicely.
