Exurbs Grow Faster than Cities. Period.

It looks like the whoop-tee-do over the comeback of cities may be premature. We offer the following quote from Atlantic Cities — Nate Berg, Exurbs, The Fastest Growing Areas in U.S., July 19, 2012. Click on http://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/2012/07/exurbs-fastest-growing-areas-us/2636/

We quote:

“The exurbs – those deconcentrated towns flung far beyond the urban core and just outside the suburban spread – have been growing faster than the rest of the country in recent years, even amid the housing bust and economic recession. According to a new analysis from the Urban Institute and researchers at the U.S. Census Bureau, these areas have seen growth rates that far outpace more densely populated areas as well as the nation as a whole.”
