My previous experience with some of the umbrella Go Local groups was marked by an insistence that large local business alliances should fundamentally run the show. That may be an inevitable to some degree, but some sort of grassroots organizing within the general populace of any given community also seems like a worthy goal. In a sense it is of course more work to get true grassroots community movement going. But such a movement is more likely to affect a more fundamental change than a business only movement might.
