The oldest city in the region. The city that suffered an economic crisis and population loss. Where black abandoned buildings lined most of the streets. Now is the 2nd most progressive city in the region after Ciudad.
The city, whose population was stuck around 156-163,000 for several years, is now at 262,000 people and steadily growing. High-class and middle-class neighborhoods are in construction, factories and more commercial jobs are also coming to the city as the city is now experiencing a big growth surge.
In the midst of this growing city, Chrisville has now opened the gates to the entire region's 1st and only zoo. The city of Chrisville is also now the capitol of the Gateland Region.
This is big news because the entire region of Gateland has never had a zoo in its history and now in the midst of its growth and capitol status, a zoo has been opened.
Right outside of downtown, next to the new Gatewood Manor Estates (high-class section) and the minor/major league/ baseball stadiums is where the new zoo is.
People are so excited about this event that the city is allowing the first weekend, entirely free to go to the new zoo. People are expected to come from all over the region to visit this zoo for its grand opening and on.
Chrisville will be celebrating its population growth, capitol status, and the opening of the new zoo this Saturday afternoon at 2:00 with a block party downtown not too far from the university. There will be boths set up from the streets near the University of Chrisville leading down to the new Chrisville zoo.A concert series will follow into the night. There will be a parade also Sunday morning, starting from UC campus to the zoo!
That means that hotels in the city will be packed, (reserve your room while you can)
New Beardon and Dianna are getting ready for heavy traffic because of the opening of the region's 1st ever zoo in the 2nd largest city of Chrisville.
New Beardon, known as the connection, is the only city that connects 4 cities together, in other words, it connects the region together. SO traffic coming from Ciudad de Los Volcanos/Dianna metro and traffic from Browntown/Filipo/ and Jellyville will be coming.
Though Dianna is used to its neighboring city of Ciudad and it's traffic, they are still going to be extra prepared also for the traffic.
(Thanks to the new road in Chrisville, that goes out of the city into the woods and mountains, it also connects the Chrisville metro together. So the road will take you into Browntown and Filipo and as far as Jellyville. The city is very small so it will be easy to catch the road that leads into Filipo/Browntown and Chrisville or the New Beardon road that leads straight into Chrisville. (The New Beardon road will just be a little more hectic, thanks to its neighbors of Dianna and Ciudad de Los Volcanos)
Chrisville is steadily growing and hoping for more. "Yeah Ciudad is 351,000 people, we're 262,000 strong right now, before you know it, we'll be competiting with them!" says mayor Ulibarri.
