This article presents information related to Metro D.C. Envisions. For the last several years, well-intentioned proposals to increase density and mix uses around Metro stations have been argued in planning and zoning hearings throughout the region. While everyone pays lip service to "smart growth," nobody wants it in their back yards. With Reality Check, members of the Smart Growth Alliance, which cosponsored the event with the Urban Land Institute's Washington Area District Council and Fannie Mae, hope to move beyond these rancorous debates to develop a regional consensus.
