Summary and Impact

After nearly a decade of construction and a quarter of a million simoleans spent, the neighborhood of Oak Park is 95% complete. Four schools, two hospitals, two police stations, and a fire station are some of the main civil support buildings that were constructed, as well as two libraries. A movie theatre was also added. The city council has received word from the Better Business Bureau that over 25 businesses plan to move into our community. These include McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Home Depot, Subway, and many others. Placement for these businesses is still under review. Currently, only a 2 km drive along Oak Park Blvd and a number of bus stations provide access to the interstate and the rest of the city. Future road plans may include either a rail spur or parkway connecting the neighborhood to I-39. In the meantime, traffic impact and commute time is manageable. Economic impact is an overwhelming positive, with monthly revenue into the treasury increasing by $3,500.

We need to continue to raise enough money each month to pay for expenses which includes hardware, bandwidth, software licenses, support licenses and other necessary 3rd party costs.

By way of a "Thank You" gift, we'd like to send you our STEX Collector's DVD. It's some of the best buildings, lots, maps and mods collected for you over the years. Check out the STEX Collections for more info.
