** FILE ** This Oct. 2010 aerial file photo shows the Fox River as it flows into downtown Oswego, Ill., in Kendall County, with subdivisions and farmland to the southeast. The nation's No. 1 fastest-growing county from 2000 to 2010, Kendall was part of an exurban wave in the heady 2000s that more than doubled its population. But Census estimates as of July 2011 highlight a shift in population trends, following an extended housing bust and renewed spike in oil prices: outlying suburbs are now seeing their growth fizzle to historic lows, halting American city dwellers' decades-long exodus to sprawling homes in distant towns.
