City Expansion Project: New Freeway System and Residential Zones

Sign in to follow this  


City officials have affirmed that a city expansion project will take place, in efforts to raise the population and residential levels balanced. To do this, better transportation for people will be installed including subways and bus routes, but not for a couple years. This is the city look right now.


To start, Minnville is creating a freeway system to connect all areas of the city to make commute easier and accessible to other cities.


Here is a completed look.


Downtown is as well expanding, and planning on expanding to areas closer to the Freeway. This includes adding entertainment & attractions like sports teams.


Here is a view on the 50th anniversery of the city.


The residential zones to the west of Downtown Minnville are growing fast and added a population of over 5,000.


For those residential homes, restraunts and stores have opened up in between Downtown and the residential areas. This includes, Walmart and Starbucks....


Wendy's, Sonic, Sunoco Gas Station and a club...


And last, but not least, a Pizza Hut, Verizon Wireless shop, Party City, Family Dollar and a Bowling Alley.


One last view of Downtown


And one last view of the city as a whole, at a population of 135,000


More city expansions and attractions will be in the next journal. The Expansion Project is in full gear, and just getting started. Please rate and comment. :golly:

i would recommend brushing up on some urban planning...for example, the freeway doesn't seem to have any logical purpose. No municipal government would waste money on a highway if a cheaper alternative (like a road) could be built instead.

Actually, ever since expansion, the freeway is filled with cars. It right now, it the only use of transportation (excluding the airport).
