Welcome to Highland! Highland is city near Genoa with nice weather, beautiful water, and many tourist attractions. Throughout this CJ
, I will be showing the Greater Highland area and its progress in many things like population, tourism, economy, etc. Update 1: Introduction
This is downtown Highland. Gridlock is not uncommon here. The city's Department of Transit wants to expand the roads, but they don't have enough space between all the buildings.
Here's one of the worst intersections during rush hour.
Aside from all the traffic problems, most people enjoy downtown Highland. It is filled with high-rise office towers and luxury condos.
This is the city hall. Highland has a very organized and specific city government. It is divided into several departments with officials elected by the citizens of the city.
Highland is divided by a river creatively named the Highland River.
All the bridges are raised so residents can easily bring their boat out into the ocean. Boating is one of the most popular things to do in Highland. There are several public marinas in the city, including one downtown.
This is the mayor's house. With the help of all of his department officials, he runs the city. His house is located right on the Highland river. Every mayor has a new house built for them in a different neighborhood near the Highland River.
One of the most interesting stories in Highland is McCarthy Farm. The McCarthy's were a family in Highland that started a farm in the early 1900's. Each generation of their family kept taking care of the farm. In the 1940's the city persisted on buying their land for developing. They would not sell. Now, it is open to the public as a little museum for city kids who know nothing about farms.
A teaser for the next update:
Make sure you comment!
