Well geesh, from reading this you would think the author doesn't actually live in PGC. This is beginning to sound too much like, "everybody did it wrong and now that I'm 5 years in, I'm gonna tell you how wrong it actually was."

Would you say that PGC has been particularly innovative in the way it's approached land use and zoning?

Mr. Heard never said that woodmore was smart growth and in fact outlined its several problems. The issue at hand though is that it could have only been built with explicit particpation and decisions by the PG county government. It could have easily been built by a metro or replaced landover mall if the county council decided that it was a priority. It wasn't and now the county is stuck with that much more sprawl in an area with a finite amount of land.
