Ignoring the Obvious
This study focuses specifically on the development of age-restricted, active adult communities, not naturally occurring retirement communities, or age-targeted retirement communities. Neither type of community bans those under the age of nineteen as permanent residents. Furthermore, neither is likely to have 80 percent or more of its housing units occupied by at least one person who is age fifty-five or older. The age-restricted communities have the highest concentration of the elderly. This history also focuses on communities that have at least five hundred residential units, not single buildings or smaller developments. This study does not cover trailer courts, recreational vehicle parks, or manufactured-home communities, all of which continue to be tremendously popular with retirees, particularly in Florida but elsewhere in the Sunbelt as well.
