Smart Growth In Arlington

In part one of our interview with incoming county manager Michael Brown, the topic of growth and development was raised.

For the past 40 years, Arlington has been practicing transit-oriented “smart growth.” As the population and the local economy continues to grow,  a county-sponsored documentary was created to look back at the mistakes and successes of the past.

More recently, a shorter video was released, explaining the planning that has made Arlington what it is today. See the video, after the jump.

Also stay tuned for part two of our interview with Michael Brown, featuring a discussion of taxes and housing, coming up tomorrow.
