Weekend Newsletter: October 15, 2011
If You Could Design Your Own Retirement Community
Welcome to our occasional weekend newsletter, which focuses on interesting active adult and 55+ communities and the issues surrounding them.  This week the featured article was inspired by a reader inquiry about communities that break the mold.
The image above shows the entrance to Fearrington Village, an intriguing community near Chapel Hill, NC. that breaks the active community mold.

Horseartist wrote last week looking for ideas on out of the ordinary communities. Her quest was for places to retire that are unique and don't necessarily follow the stereotypical golf course and gated community concept. This article has some suggestions to help her and the millions more baby boomers who share her dream. We also have a challenge for you. Tell us what your retirement community would look like, if you were designing it (with apologies to Steve Jobs, who famously said consumers don't know what they want).
We invite you to explore more communities - there are over 1500 in this directory:
