End of the exurbs?

Sabrina Tavernise, reporting on the 2010 Census for the New York Times:

“The exurbs were the cutting edge of growth in the United States in the boom period,” Mr. Frey said. “That growth has really come to a standstill, and is maybe being given up for dead at this point.”

Given how closely the recession was tied to the housing bust, I’m curious to see what will happen when the market recovers.
