Smart Growth

White Flint is committed to Smart Growth and to creating a community that encourages walking, biking and the use of mass transit. Our goal is to achieve a unique sense of community and place – expanding the range of transportation, employment and housing choices, planning for open spaces and parks that encourage physical activity, preserving natural and cultural resources and promoting public well-being.

Plans for parks and walkability include:

  • Seven parks, ample green space and landscaping, less asphalt
  • Incentives to encourage people to leave their cars and walk through the urban core
