City Planning in Second Life

Second Life seems like such a dynamic platform for real-life city planning, and now that seems to be coming to fruition. The city of Birmingham in the UK has taken the lead in taking a look at this new platform for this practical purpose. The initiative has opened itself to mixed reviews, but I think that its a great test of how directly Second Life reflects real-life programs.

How can Second Life help planners in your community develop children’s centers, parks and other community hubs? Is this a worthwhile venture?
