This is my original layout of this city.
After one year has passed, new residents and small businesses have started to move into town. There is a small industrial area in the south-eastern part of the city which when developed, will create lots of jobs for the new sims. There are now 1200 residents in Hamilton.
2 years latter the mayor held a meeting to discuss where we could build a new residential zone to bring more people to the city as there were many jobs that needed to be filled. It was decided to zone a large medium density residential zone north-east of the current one. We have also zoned a new commercial strip to encourage more businesses to put up shop in the city. There are now 1400 residents in Hamilton.
The new residential zone is now developed and we have expanded the current industrial zone to provide more jobs to the new sims. The railroad was expanded to cut though part of the new suburb to help easy traffic. There are now 9200 sims living in Hamilton.
The mayor called a meeting with citizens and council members of Hamilton to discuss what could be done to improve the city, nobody knew about the very large surplus of cash that the city was bringing in each month except for the mayor and the head of the treasury department. In the meeting there were many things that were suggested that would help improve the city. After the meeting the mayor and the head of the treasury department had a meeting of there own and decided that the following buildings can be constructed over the next 3 years. The buildings that will be built are: Elementary school, Hospital, Police and Fire Departments, and a public library.
After a year of city planning for the new buildings, the new large police station is complete. Shortly after the construction of the fire station begins.
A new road was built to the northwesters part of the city and was deforested to prepare to be zoned for industrial there was a small police station built to keep crime under control. A passenger and freight rail station was built.
In December of year 6 the new Fire station is complete.
A small part of the forest was cleared and the hospital, elementary school and library were built.
The Area to the north-west was finally cleared and zoned for industry. A water purification plant was built. The mayor started to receive complaints about the garbage piling up around the city so he rezones a small part of the industrial zone to a landfill. The city’s population has risen to 10,600.
The mayor wanted to clear the north-eastern forest to make way for more low density residential to boost the city’s income. The NFTH (New Freon Tree Huggers) organization demanded that he dose not do so.
After weeks of fighting, they have come to an agreement…
The new zone will be built by the fire station and the police station. Due to the smaller size it was agreed that the new zone will be a dense residential zone, the first in the region. It was also agreed that because it is a high density zone, that the mayor had to plan to build a few parks and sports fields.
The new residential area is zoned. The mayor hired contractors to build a soccer field and a baseball diamond and a few small parks. He also zoned a few more commercial areas along the main roads to give more jobs to the new sims.
For the 12th anniversary of the city, the citizens have raised funds to build a house for the mayor and a city hall!
The city needs more people and more income, the mayor zones some more medium density residential zoned and commercial on the main road that leads to the northwestern industrial sector.
I am done this city… for now. In the last 6 years there has been a few zoning changes to better suit the city’s needs. A new high school has been built. A plasma gasification plant was also built to help get rid of the garbage that is lying around the city as the land fill, well filled up.
There will be another entry tomorrow hopefully. Please comment and rate (when available)
