Latinos are changing every aspect of the country: food, culture, music, sports, television, employment, politics, and our cities. The Latino population in the United States has been a growing demographic group in the last decades; it is predicted that it will be the largest minority in the United States in the very near future. As this minority group continues to grow, it will intrinsically change the face of our neighborhoods, schools and environments. It is important for developers, government agencies, and planners to understand the implications of Latino growth, their social needs, and settlement pattern to plan accordingly for the future.
