Banning younger residents is currently legal in the US, but banning older residents is not.

     I generally support the right of people to organize communities to suit their preferences, so I will go with yes.

good question

It seems to me that a local govt should not be able to say "nobody under x" or "nobody over y" can buy land in our jurisdiction, but individual property owners should be allowed to not sell to whatever aged person they choose.  If you don't want to live around old people, you can still do that if you buy a big chunk of land and only sell parts of it to people of an age you like.

Of course not. This is nakedly discriminatory. The fact that it's currently legal to do to young people but not to old people demonstrates that on some level policymakers are aware of this.

No. This idea of creating communities to exclude groups of people you don't like is reactionary.

If some Salafists bought up the land in a municipality and created a sharia zone where no kafir were allowed, would you support them?

Yes, (near-)retirees should be allowed to have communities where they can live in peace.

I think it's a pretty reasonable question actually. In Europe, the populist right makes a lot of hay about the idea that migrant communities are making their own communities. It raises the point - if we support the idea that local communities have the right to run themselves, why can't they do so?

I say that it's constitutionally permissible, but who knows whether the Supreme Court might or might not agree with me. Five Justices can rule whatever way they want when it comes to the Equal Protection Clause.

Mixed opinion. I don't think there's anything wrong with communities trying to have people of roughly the same age so that everyone is sort of on the same page.

But on the other hand, I think it would be a really bad thing if age-restricted communities were so prevalent that people of a certain age had a hard time finding places to live. I also think that restricting occupation anything based on age sets a bad precedent.

Yes to a small extent such as retirement communities since aging is something that everybody goes through whether they want to or not, but I think age restriction should only apply to who actually owns the property so that the homeowner can allow family to live with them if they desire, somebody that might be acting as caregivers, or college students who want to live closer to school, or younger grandchildren who don't have any other family, as examples.
