Properly named adjacent regions, mooring mast and seaplane harbor added. One guess as to what will be placed on Hub Island!

The Bay City Region Names Appear

Bay City names, thanks to your suggestions! Also notice red parcels indicating the location of unique builds as well as green parcels which are the low-prim parks that contribute to the double prim nature of resident-owned land.

An early draft of Michael's Bay City Map

The first version of Bay City showing parcel planning. As these Regions will have double prims, just over half of the land needs to be held by Governor Linden. The colored parcels shown here represent roughly 47% of the land, most of which will be made available for auction. 1-2 parcels per Region will be reserved for Unique Builds or for parks/social spaces.

Blue's initial proposal for "tilable" city Regions

The design was meant to be more of an east coast / old european layout in that the roads have an almost random, evolving (paved horse path) feel to them. In my experience, this makes for the most interesting and "discoverable" neighborhoods. Roads that are laid out on grids as they are in LA and other modern, planned cities don't inspire quite the same sense of adventure or exploration.
