From Sun Cities to the Villages

The expansion of communities brought to a head certain political issues such as familial discrimination for their banning of under adult age children as permanent residents. This topic is covered in this chapter. The phenomenal success of Webb and Cortese motivated a host of other developers to build their own communities, often with different minimum ages than Sun City's fifty or Leisure World's fifty-two. To exempt age-restricted, active adult communities from legislation designed to bar discrimination in housing with respect to the presence of children under nineteen, Congress had to grant them a precise definition, which resulted in a level of standardization. Meanwhile, these communities continued to evolve and proliferate, challenging and redefining attitudes toward aging.
