Making a city “smart” is emerging as a strategy to mitigate the problems generated by rapid urbanization. (Chourabi et al, 2012) In response to the increasing use of the concept, this paper explores different strategies and provides an overview on recent practices aimed to achieve “smart growth”. Furthermore, this document proposes to discuss policies and initiatives applied by local government in Greater Resistencia (Argentina), a middle size city protected by embankment to prevent further flooding from Paraná River. The city has the challenge to accommodate over 7,000 new residents per year within the polder which limit opportunities to grow within it.
