"Regionalism isn't dead, just delayed (editorial) | al.com"

THE ALABAMA Gulf Coast Area Chamber of Commerce and the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce won't be merging after all. A vote to combine the two fell short of the 75 percent requirement this week.

But though the results were disappointing, this doesn't mean that regionalism is dead among the chambers of commerce in south Baldwin County.
Far from it.
In the meantime, the chambers can continue to work together on issues when it is advantageous to do so. South Baldwin County leaders have already reaped the benefits of combining efforts in the wake of the oil spill.

The most visible evidence of such cooperation was the Coastal Resiliency Coalition and its "war room," where leaders from various communities came together to hash out the many problems stemming from the BP disaster.
