- Smart growth, a strategy to build sustainable cities, has been proposed to prevent urban sprawl, for example, by using compact development. This paper develops Smart Growth Measure Model to measure the success of smart growth of a city, and uses two specific cases to demonstrate the model. Based on the three E's of sustainability, 14 indicators from the economic, social and environmental aspects are selected to build a multi-level Smart Growth Indicators system. We then use the Full Permutation Polygon Synthetic Indicator Method to compute the Comprehensive Indicator (CI) and use it as an indicator to measure the success of smart growth. At last, two cities, Hartford, US and Bloemfontein, South Africa are selected as case studies.
