To the Exurbs!

America has always been home to extremes and polarization, especially when it comes to housing. So it probably shouldn't be surprising that amid calls for increased density and some measure of the population seeking a return to city living, the fastest growing areas in the country are actually exurbs. Granted, some exurbs are actually small towns located outside the suburban rings that circle major metropolitan areas. And these places offer a walkable lifestyle around a 'historic' downtown core. But the macro view of this trend reveals a small but still significant portion of the U.S. population seeking low density and the lifestyle that goes with it. [The Atlantic Cities]
