The Rising Suburbs

The "city" of Roseburb

...is not an actual city. Rather, it is the parcel of land where large swaths of Roseville citizens have begun to migrate as the city proper becomes evermore overpopulated.

Due to aforementioned land restrictions east of the Rose River, the population brewing in Roseville has been forced to extend west into unchartered territory.

The land was purchased by Roseville in 220 F.R. and has seen great growth since.

Two major highways have been erected to serve the estimated 50,000 residents that are expected to flood into the new district.

SR4 runs from the edge of Roseville's newly acquired land to the city core.

SR5 serves as a N/S route for the new territory, and will hopefully keep the new citizens from flooding the already busy R202 near downtown.

Current State

The Roseburb annex territory has many connections to the inner city, the upper avenue we can see here is actually SR4 in avenue form, heading into the busy city.


Many citizens like to live near the Roseville International Airport, which is just beyond the borders of the new annex. Although there is considerable noise, the view of planes taking off and the easy travel access are great perks.


On the other side of the rail viaduct lies a small string of fast food restaurants, followed by the beginning of suburban sprawl.


Along with the fast food and small mall area, many high tech corporations and manufacturers have moved into the area because of the cheap land values and easy rail access. Rail is very limited in the Roseville city center.


The industries extend up along this main avenue and are paralleled by some of the suburban development.


Even some farms have moved in. They are directly west of the last farm field in Roseville proper, along with the Roseville Elite Club for golfing and the University of Roseville.


The suburbs have grown wildly since the land opened up, and many Rosevillians are enjoying the wide open spaces and greenery that are not commonly associated with Roseville.


Currently, development is prohibited past SR5 until 250 F.R. Developers want to make sure that the local wild llama will not pose too much of a threat to residences built past the highway. Shown is the intersection of SR4 and SR5, or Jct.45 as the government calls is.


An overview of the currently developed area. The government hopes to keep the farms around so that residents can go out on romantic country drives and get away from the busy city.
