article description
The us-based smart growth planning policy movement both preceded and arguably provided an important conceptual antecedent for later smart city research. However, the empirical relationships between the two programs are insufficiently developed. This paper reviews smart growth in Greater Seattle, arguing for more research on how the two concepts might in fact relate to one another within the context to a wider regional development sensitivity. The paper concludes that the smart city-region could arguably replace both smart growth and smart cities in future urban research.
