tepodon - Thanks very much! That was my first experiment with those culvert lots, I'm glad you like them!

 

---UPDATE---

First off, lets visit the small village yet to be engulfed by subburbia... Madison. Madison is as old as kenningsjor but has not enjoyed the growth the heart of the city has. It has however prospered and has succesfully attracted hightech jobs to replace the manufacturing jobs it has held for the past century. Madison is now home to a modern biotech lab and a brand new apple packaging plant. Its old economic driver, the Madison Potato Fertilizer Corp. still operates a large plant there and still turns in a decent profit.

Some quick history. Established by farmers in 1661 as a place to trade goods among locals and grew to a population of 1000 within ten years. In 1701, the church was constructed after the previous wooden chapel was burned to the ground in a lightning storm. In 1899, the Madison Potato Fertilizer Corp set up shop and the infrastucture of the town was heavily upgraded, and the citizens were delighted by the ashphalt roads. By 2007, the census reported a population of 2107 people after many Kenningsjor residents moved into houses renovated or totally rebuilt townhouses by CCI (Capitol Central Imperial) construction works limited.

The town today...

The other small village which has an extremely boring history is Absence, Kenningsjor. It developed while the junction of two roads in town were an important meeting place. Now traffic has been redirected and the small town is dead. The population is 706 as of 2007.

The following are the outskirts of the main city.

The dirt roads you see is just the leveling of land in preparation of road widenings to four lanes. The Capitol District Infrastructure Board is upgrading country access around the region to help move goods after the explosion of subdivisions has brought traffic in some places to a standstill. These roads now act as ringroads and freight movement is already seeing a massive improvement in completed zones.

Lastly, here is the remaining part of the city to the south of the CBD that rings around the opposite side of the bay.

Leewood is the name. Wide avenues and subburbs is the game. However, Leewood does have a well developed core as well and is home to tons of jobs... almost matching the CBD.
