Florida's Urbanized Rural Population: Implications for Planning. The Florida State University Governmental Research Bulletin, Volume VIII, Number 3.
Dietrich, T. Stanton
Florida's urbanized rural population consists of 3 segments: persons in places under 2,500 population; persons in suburbs or open country but not on farms; and persons in other urban territory. This urbanized rural population continues to grow, despite annexation and consolidation by urban communities, and the wide disparity that once existed between urban and rural populations has all but disappeared. However, the persistent growth of the urbanized rural areas with populations oriented to urban life implies the need for more intensive and innovative social planning efforts. Future planning programs must be concerned with such goals as maintaining some equitable balance between agricultural and nonagricultural activities and between man and his environment if problems associated with population growth and density are to be avoided.
