More Burgh lust in Cleveland:

Civic leaders from as far away as Israel have expressed strong interest in replicating the program, the brainchild of Bill Strickland. The Pittsburgh native began working on the Manchester Bidwell model while a freshman at the University of Pittsburgh.

The model already has been copied in San Francisco, Cincinnati and Grand Rapids, Mich. Cleveland appears to be next: The Cleveland Foundation in September approved a grant of $450,000 for support and planning for the Cleveland Center for Arts and Technology.

Is The Plain Dealer attempting to shame its readership into action?
