Topic - Smart Growth

This page summarizes KnowledgePlex content about Smart Growth.

Smart growth refers to development practices that conserve open space, take advantage of existing urban infrastructure, and produce a more compact urban environment. These practices seek, in part, to combat sprawl, which refers to low-density, expansive development patterns characterized by discontinuous or non-compact development ("leapfrog"), automobile-dependent development, highly segregated land uses, and lack of concentration around a central core area or city.
