With the acceleration of urbanization, urban planning becomes more and more important. We did some in-depth discussion about sustainable city and smart growth initiatives in this paper.Firstly, we define a metric which is a comprehensive index to measure the success of smart growth of a city. On the basis of a comprehensive analysis of the all factors that affect the smart growth of urban, we use the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), which is a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods to define the metric. We select the smart growth index as the target layer, the three E's of sustainability (Economically prosperous, socially Equitable, and Environmentally Sustainable) as the principle layer. Besides, we select seven indicators (e.g. Gini coefficient, Employment growth rate) from a series of factors by using Cluster analysis and Principal component analysis to constitute the solution layer. Hence, we get a three-layer evaluation system.
