Trying to manage growth and avoid sprawl is a critical role of the Metropolitan Regional Planning Agency (Metro). The agency was established in the late '70s to assure Portland wouldn't suffer the blighted landscapes and traffic gridlock of cities like Houston or Atlanta. In this half hour special producer Jim Newman takes a critical look at some of the projects Metro is working on, including the city of Damascus.
