The beauty and calm of the region gave the idea to the Marriott hotel chain to open a new hotel in the area. They bought a large land on the shores of the lake and build a huge hotel. A new road was also created to access the hotel from the I-48. This new development brought new people in the county, who mostly work at the hotel. The county created commercial zones near the beaches, and the population quickly reached 534 citizens. A gas station was also opened on the new road.
As the county was expanding more and more, the Assembly decided to divide it in 9 equal zones. Citizens proposed ideas for the names of the new districts, and the Assembly voted for the best ones. Also, because of the population that was now over 1000, a new constitution was adopted by the citizens to make the Assembly more representative of the population. The county government is now a representative democracy, formed by a Council of councilors, and a mayor., with a proportional ratio of councilor per citizen (currently 1 for 100). There is 2 councilors from Wind Gulch and 9 from Eagle Lake. The North Wood Lumber Company also had a non-voting representative, because of their importance in the county. The councilors are elected by the citizens of their respective district. As the county develops, more councilors will be elected to the Assembly. There is currently no councilor from other districts. The mayor cannot normally vote in the Council, but if the vote is tight, he can vote. The mayor is elected by all the county's citizens.
A new power plant was also built by the County to supply power to the new residential developments in Eagle Lake district. It's a brand new geothermic plant which is very ecologic, because it doesn't emit any CO2 or toxic gazes. Plans to build power lines are currently discussed by the county Council, to carry power from Eagle Lake to other districts.
