An editorial in the New York Times discusses a subject we've explored often in this space, the decline in the exurbs.
Remember that this is an editorial and not news. The writer has a stake in being right.
That said, I agree with most of what he is saying.
Local communities should take note. Our towns (Warrenton, Culpepper, Bealeton, Gainesville, Haymarket, etc.) are not set up to profit from this trend right now. We need more housing around town centers and more high paying local jobs that allow people to work where they live.
