Are there any communities out there are are geared towards older folks who want to retire in a permies environment?

My inlaws retired many years ago in Sun City Arizona. I fell in love with the place. Everything an older person would need in one area. Lots of recreation centers with shops and arts and crafts clubs. Hospitals, and grocery stores . golf cart friendly streets. Swimming pools , bowling alleys, golf etc.

Now adays I think of a slightly different "Sun City" Something a lot more rural and a lot more permie freindly.

Let me just throw out some random thoughts and maybe we can get some more ideas to solidify around them.

I want to retire! I am lucky enough to have 3 pensions, a house and a piece of land that I can sell. So I would have money to live on, invest in, a community.

Someplace where I could own a nice cob or straw bale house,with an acre of land, with permies neighbors. Gardens all around. Solar heated pools to excercise my old bones in. A community center with shops for wood and metal working. Arts and crafts to make. A market garden and permie farm to supply great food.

A place where I could own the home and land, and that my kids could sell to the next permie owner after my wife and I cross over.

Is there a place out there sort of like that or would anyone want to start such a place?
