Came across this looking for the same answer. The best way I found is to add a \n, in the attribute text, where you want your break. Billy Joes \n Dry Cleaners LLC = Billy Joes Dry Cleaners LLC
You can set the scale on the fly using ArcPy's mapping module: from arcpy import mapping mxd = mapping.MapDocument(r"Some Path") df = mxd.activeDataFrame # you can also get access to all data frames through listdataframes() scales = [1500,3000,...,50000] for scale in scales: df.scale = scale # do stuff with map Hope this helps.

If you are using Data Driven Pages from ArcMap there is an option to round the best fit scale to nearest value of your choice (see below) To use this in ArcPy I would have a look at this question and answer: How to automatically generate useful scales for data driven pages in ArcGIS desktop
I finally figuerd it out. It may seem a little awkward since it is no arcpy solution, but it worked for me. Create the regular trackbased SIMPLE_SMIF.shp Run INTERSECT from toolbox with SIMPLE_SMIF.shp county.shp as input layers. Note that the rank (which of these layers is put above the other) in the dialogue window will influence the result. I placed ...
What you are trying to do is not a beginner topic in ArcPy with Data Driven Pages but should be achievable. From the help for DataDrivenPages (arcpy.mapping): Map series can be created without any scripting at all by using the Data Driven Pages toolbar from within ArcMap. The reverse is also true: map series can be completely scripted using ...
To do this I would: Copy your index layer in the table of contents and set its symbology to however you wish to highlight that polygon Set a Page Definition Query on the Definition Query tab of the Properties for the "copy of your Index" layer to keep the feature that matches it and that's it!
To get the attributes from boundaries.shp into SMIF.shp I would use the Union (Analysis) tool: Computes a geometric union of the input features. All features and their attributes will be written to the output feature class. Once you have that you will probably see that some of your SMIF polygons fall within more than one of your county polygons so ...
