Arlington’s Smart Growth Journey traces the story of how visionary leaders – and residents who passionately loved their community – together transformed an aging suburb into a national model of transit-oriented development. Arlington’s setbacks and victories, battles and debates will resonate with any community seeking an alternative to sprawl.
This is the story of how a community came together to embrace “Smart Growth” – by leveraging public transit to achieve sustainable growth… while preserving and strengthening the neighborhoods that are the heart and soul of Arlington.
