Cities, Suburbs and Exurbs: One Integrated System

Planners need to view cities, suburbs and exurbs not as discrete units but as regions, with one integrated environmental and technological system.

Millennial suburbanites want a new kind of landscape. They want breathing room but disdain the energy wastefulness, visual monotony and social conformity of postwar manufactured neighborhoods. If new suburbs can hit the sweet spot that accommodates the priorities of that generation, millennial habitats will redefine everyday life for all suburbanites, which is 70 percent of Americans.
