Urban? Suburban? We need a third term to define the new type
of sprawl that baby boomers are creating across the American
landscape. Small, rapidly growing communities of retirement and
second homeowners are located intentionally away from urban
centers. Unlike the draw of economic opportunity or school districts
that propelled suburban sprawl in the post-war era, natural
beauty is the new magnet. The promise of a life amid transcendent
beauty lures a portion of this demographic group of
affluent fifty- to sixty-five-year-olds. Taos, New Mexico, provides
a case study of this contemporary phenomenon.
