Welcome to Aquaria. The name Aquaria conjures up images of the sea, well unfortunately someone in records office was dyslexic, and reversed the tail on the 'g' in Agraria (as in Agrarian) and could not be changed. As a result of their quetzalcoatic name they play up how little surface water there is, with a yearly water festival. However, as the early settlers found out, the large amount of rain that Aquaria gets, being close enough to the mountains to get the rain when the clouds climb, but far enough away to enjoy not being bogged down in mud, Aquaria has become quite the apt name for this community.

I-96 cuts the corner on its travels between Libran and Sagittaron. The freeway thankfully helps to contain the heavy industry in the Southeast Corner of the city.

SR-960 and SR-017 intersect in the rural farmland, with just a hint of commerce.

UTR3 travels through its own right-of-way, in a trench, to best provide service possible.

The New Seattle Monorail travels North to Rosenberg in a loop to provide quick access for residents work in off-site industrial areas. Minor survey marks occur through the field in the East of the shot for a planned extension of Oak Rd.

Some new commercial developments are occurring between the monorail right-of-ways.

Thanks JGellock - I've spent a lot of time in and around Portland, OR as well as Detroit and Flint, MI, and Indianapolis, and especially around Portland, you can make a wrong turn a go from a city into farm land. This also seems to be the most logical use of land, and isn't much different from my current home, except there are usually more trees and less farmland.
