CHOAL SETTLEMENT, LANDAU COUNTY
COLONIAL EXPANSION IN SOUTH SEATTLE
Choal is a newly commissioned settlement on the south western banks of Lake Washington in the Seattle region. it is under the provisional government of settlers and is administrated by Landau County with input and guidance from the Federal Bureau of Mandated Territories. This Settlement has the blessing and protection of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in Right of Canada and England.
The town is situated at the mouth of the Choal River and at a natural isthmus between two mountain ranges, allowing for direct connection to a river corridor that lies to the east. The initial expedition was with $100 000 and 600 Canadian Settlers led by Montgomery Landau, Deputy Governor of the Wardly Expansion Company. Leeroy Choal, Landau's Chief Surveyor, led the initial outing that established the town limits and it was named in his honour. Leeroy currently serves as Chairman of the provisional government.
The land east of the River has been opened for further expansion and resource extraction. Timber is the main profit driver for this local economy and many lands east of town will be opened to industrial logging firms. An impending western connection with Roos County will see civil jurisdiction between the two districts overlap.
Urban and suburban Choal will be jointly developed in partnership between the Federal Mortgage and Housing Corp. and SettCol Property Development. There will be an expected 5-10,000 new citizens moving into the Choal Regional District in the next 10-15 years and that means we must stay attuned to the demands of the community. On the shores of the River will sit the Downtown Choal Business District.
The highlands behind Fedmor Ridge will be reserved for residential homes and neighbourhoods, as well as large green spaces that respect the nature of the dense, temperate rain forest that surrounds the town. Extensive bike lines and alternative modes of transit will be implemented, as well as a unique mixture of zoning regulations that will allow farming within city limits. This will put a strain on our municipal services and management systems, but lands in East Choal are already earmarked for such public infrastructure investments.
East Choal is a much larger and offers much more flat, usable territory than city-centre. It sits opposite the commercial district on the Choal River. It is under lease to the East Choal Prospective Industrial Development Corp. (PIDC) and will be subdivided and developed into large and medium industrial parcels. A bridge will be needed before any ground can be broken east of the river.
New east-side commercial and residential districts will accompany this expansion mainly being built on the peripheries of industrial developments near the south townline and to the east near the foot of the mountains. The Coconico Foothills and forest district will provide an eastern boundary to civil development, but timber claims will continue eastward until reaching the border of the Donatello Gorge Regional Reserve.
The First 5-Year Program to be implemented by the provisional government of the Landowning Brotherhood of Settlers (LBS) will see modest growth and territorial expansion of Choal's eastern limits, currently the Choal River. Important municipal connections will be established with Roos County about a sister-community emerging along the border to ease territorial pressures and a particular focus will be on fostering a healthy commercial and industrial culture, while protecting the environment and discouraging the development of "dirty" industry within the living space of ordinary citizens.
