A huge economical depression hits the city. The funds are down to zero. Residential Taxes have to be raised for there to be balance and will be lowered again when there is enough money.

The new income:

Also, the government decides to import garbage from Bruno city for a good amount of exchange. 

255.jpg

Here is a graph of the total funds over a period of 10 years, where you can appreciate the couple economical depressions. As you can see in the red circle (or kind of a circle) the total funds, which have increased finally over the last year with he various changes made. 

256.jpg

This depression causes a harsh impact on the value of the currency. Here is the current and past exchange rates:

Before

1 URS Franc - 0.52 U.S. dollars

1 URS Franc - 8 Mexican pesos

1 URS Franc - 0.38 Euros

After

1 URS Franc - 0.31 U.S. dollars

1 URS Franc - 4.7 Mexican pesos

1 URS Franc - 0.223 Euros

Finally some more developement photos:

Hello everyone. I apologize for taking so long, but school has gotten in the way with the start of my IGCSEs so I barely have time to hang out here in ST or Simcity. This is just a small update to answer the next poll.

617squad: Thanks for you comments, but if youre going to post a comment  which says exactly the same, please don't. lol

Jim1994: Thanks!

simcityplyr100: Thanks a lot for your time, and don't worry, the worse that could happen, is losing your vice-president chair 15.gif

spore415: Thanks!

penguin007: Thanks!

un1: Thanks un1!

wishfulanthony: Thanks for taking the time on thinking all that! Whoa!

Matrx999: I'm very glad you liked my URS Open concept. Thanks!

Okay then, lets get on with this mini update

After option A was chosen, the government got into work on a huge subway sysem which would travel throughout the entire city, with stations strategically placed.

 Update time! The big surprise is that now I will be naming city council members each update, to the ones which post a great, detailed post and always check my cj. The first CCM (city council member is wishfulanthony

I downloaded Meadowshire terrain mod, which is beautiful but it looks much much different. 

Updating this time was difficult cause everyone said something different and I couldn't do everyhing so.... I did what was more asked to. More parks, more develoment, take advantage of the sea, and more schools and hospitals.

To start with, a huge hospital which was built to replace the little one, this one covers the whole city:

Next question is quite simple, what next? but this time it's going to be different. When posting your 

answer, you'll have to choose one number between 1 and 100. I already chose a number and

 If you posted the number closest or same as the chosen one, you will be the one deciding what to 

do next, with an extra §70,000.

Hello everyone and welcome to a new update. While you waited, the hardworking sims of Three Mesas where building a brand new highway, which was completed succesfully after 4 days (yeah thats fast) and is now ready to be used. I chose to develop as wishfulanthony said, cause he gave a lot of detail on what to do so 1/4 of the money was used for the highway, 2/4 for the development and 1/4 remained spare:

063pn5.jpg

Some roads start being built:

064ir8.jpg

The little road system is filled with commercial zones:

065ma6.jpg

An avenue is built to link with the south part of town:

066ai5.jpg

Suburbs start to invade quickly:

067dc3.jpg

A road is placed all around the mesa:

068zb8.jpg

Another exit for the highway:

069ls7.jpg

Zoning on the whole area:

070gq5.jpg

Some tall buildings being grown and also some mid rise residential:

Schools are placed:

okay then, here's how 3 mesas is starting to develop.
The remaining mesa starts to develop on a long process:

Some terraforming to flat the area:
051jh6.jpg

Roads are built:

The mesa consits purely in residential zones
053ao9.jpg

The "plant a tree" program develops some forest around the mesa, to preserve the natural habitat of wild animals and to lower pollution:

With the help of the trees, and a high local demand, the mesa starts developing in no time:

Bruno City

Hi everyone and welcome to my new cj! First of all, you may be asking yourself what the heck does "La République-Unie de la banlieue" means, well It means "The United Republic of the Suburbs"(URS).

French - 86,361 - 42%

Portugese - 49,349 - 24%

The URS was founed in 1968 by Monsieur George Howard Hobloski. He is the current presiden, at his 62 years, he keeps the place well organized. The city is one of the newest in the world, so it's one of the most modern ones.

Let's start with a regional photo, were you can appreciate the amount of suburbs on it(ignore the poulation, the photo was taken a few years back):

216in0.jpg

The capital, Bruno CIty, Has a population of 144,390. It has the main skyscraper district of the region and the URS killers soccer stadium:

Railfan88: Thank you! I love that you like my designs! Yes, in the most populated cities (which I will post once I have time, remeber this cj was already on the forums) I have simple subway systems to keep expensures low and many bus stations. Monorail sounds as an extremely good idea! I haven't aded it because as you said, it attracts RSSS sims which will not move in to those 1x1 lots so it is not what really suits me.

La République-Unie de la banlieue (URS) is a cj which involves YOU, the reader onto the mayor desicions of the future of the country. The more you take interest in the CJ and the more you post, the higher the chances are of getting elected as councilor, head councilor or even vice-president of the country (all old stats have been erased and will be commenced from the top(sorry to those that were councilors!!!)).

The system for getting elected for one of these spots in the government is simple. You get different amounts of points for the 2 different types of comments, and I will post a table with the quantity of points for EACH of the readers that have commented in the "replies section" (page 2) everytime I update.

insulting comment: -1  *

Simple, constructive or pleasing comment:1 point

Voting on the poll: 5 points

There is a need of at least 20 points to take a place in the City Council, 25 for the head councilor and 35 for vice-president** and you must have a higher number of points than most of the writers.

There is only 6 places in the City Council, 1 head councilor, and 1 vice-president.

You may also act as an ally to the URS. If you would like to do any kind or deals or maybe become allies, I would be glad to cooperate, and you would take a place in the country's economic and commercial sector.

Current government occupation:

Councilors

N/A

Head Councilor

N/A

Vice-president

N/A

Trading with:

N/A

Allies with:

N/A

*I'm not saying you cannot be a critic, actually I LOVE tips and recommendations for improvement, but it's not the same to make a constructive comment than an insulting one

**To be the vice-president you must be the top commenter

Some pages you should keep cheking out are the following, as I will update them with new data constantly:

Page 2 - Replies section

Page 19 - Region shots

If I am missing information regarding the government system or if you have any doubts please post in this page1.gif
