In this four-day feature, The Daily Transcript will explore the pros and cons of smart growth throughout the region.
The concept of "smart living" is most notably exemplified in San Diego by Barratt Urban Development, a new division of Barratt American and its urban infill projects throughout the county.
Great cities around the world have successfully used pilot or showcase projects to bridge the gap between grand visions and reality. When the city of San Diego embarked on its citizen-created City of Villages strategy for smart growth, it initiated the Pilot Village Program. The goal of the program is to build working examples that demonstrate how villages can benefit communities citywide.
