The City of Wilson

Sign in to follow this  


Twin Peaks quickly ran out of room for expansion due to it's laws preserving nature, so Wilson was founded in the county next door. It has a lot of forested land and keeps growing even after 49 years. It has a massive public transportation system and parks and recreation system. Onto the pics.

highway5.jpgA massive highway project was the first plan put into action in Wilson and thousands of unemployed folks in Twin Peaks instantly had jobs.

highway4.jpgThis is the south western area of Wilson.

The workers pressured the town council to designate the plateau a protect area and was later named Wilson National Park.

oldwilson.jpgThis is known as Old Wilson Center due to it being the first residential and commercial project in the city to provide housing for all the workers.

wilsonstateforest2.jpgIt took 2 years to finish the trails in the national park, sadly most of the trees were cut down to build homes. Volunteers took it upon themselves to make the trails and build a stream to provide water for the trees planned to be transplanted and seeded, this is the park just before the trees were transplanted.

wilsonstateforest4.jpgThousands of volunteers helped transplants the trees over the course of 1 day thanks to the trails and the major roadways around the park. More trees were en route on the highways and rail. Simnation donated the trees in honor of the workers building the city.

wilsonheights3.jpgThe previous pic has a section of Wilson Heights, the town council answered demands to zone public housing for the new arrivals who seek employment.This is the north section of Wilson Heights abutting Wilson National Airport.

 Well it looks good. I can see you like your Redwoods! Why do I  constantly see the Columbia Center in your cities? Do you just like it, or is it a re- lotted civic?

@duke, I love the columbia center. it also boosts my $ and $$ residential. My next city won't have it. That city will be done without boosting landmarks. I absolutely love the redwoods, but I am starting to like the others in my set of trees. The mountains of Twin Peaks now have a variety of trees, so as they age, the forest should be rather interesting.

@maitre. thanks for the compliments and support. The ideas keep on coming, the farming community along the highway I am thinking of will have canals. It's gonna rock. I'm sure we'd make great friends too

A new city will be built at the mouth of the river with a highway connecting it to Wilson, I still haven't thought of a name though. Along the highway will be farmlands and some small towns. Before I start work on it though, I need to upload more pics of Wilson and make an update on Twin Peaks with it's new mountain top Financial park and Mt. Alexandria Provincial Park. Do Svidaniya
