"These "boomburbs" are large, rapidly growing, incorporated communities of more than 100,000 residents that are not the biggest city in their region. Here, Robert E. Lang and Jennifer B. LeFurgy explain who lives in them, what they look like, how they are governed, and why their rise calls into question the definition of urban. Located in over twenty-five major metro areas throughout the United States, numerous boomburbs have doubled, tripled, even quadrupled in size between census reports. Some are now more populated than traditional big cities. The population of the biggest boomburb - Mesa, Arizona - recently surpassed that of Minneapolis and Miami. Typically large and sprawling, boomburbs are "accidental cities", but not because they lack planning. Many are made up of master-planned communities that have grown into one another. Few anticipated becoming big cities, and unintentionally arrived at their status." 15.00
