With a brewing population, Quartzian industrial demand started to skyrocket. To keep the sims coming, the mayor had no other choice but to allow the development of a minor industrial area north of downtown.
The new industries have allowed Quartzia to continue its routine growth, and the mayor was finally able to relax a little.
This overhead shot shows how Quartzia has grown recently. The mayor is against cramming houses into the city centrally and likes to keep open spaces, so much of the growth has vastly spread out the city.
Here is a close up of the new industrial district. The mayor determined that the pollution given off by only a few factories would not be too toxic for the farms...
Some of the new housing developments seen:
With the influx of people, downtown has expanded nearly to the mayor's house.
Lately, many citizens have been complaining of cotton mouth and dry skin. The mayor has realized that dust from the farms around the city, as well as the new pollution being kicked up, have clotted the air. With water levels getting low, and no river within 6 km, the mayor has unleashed an ambitious new project: He calls it "The Circumnal".
He plans to build a canal that circles all the way around the currently developed areas, lending water to all the farms and increasing the green in the area as an artificial river. If trees can grow around this new device, then the farms will be protected from fowl winds and never be low on water. The canal will start in the industrial area, then branch out to a main circular track. The mayor is calling on all Quartzians to aid in this new project!
Thanks for viewing! Be sure to come back again and see the project in full sway!
