Special thanks to Ian at BlogTo and the BuffaloPundit for covering the Toronto Simcity style. I will try to keep consistent with weekly updates.

Ok, so first thing on the agenda was to lay down some streets. Yes, Yonge Street would be the most obvious place to start but so is Front. Once I got those 2 streets down estimating the distance between the east-west streets was not so bad. So then there was King Street and then Queen. I did not want to go overboard with creating all the streets at once so I kept my new city to about 4 city blocks east of Yonge. If you notice in the picture above I have placed the City Hall exactly were it should be in relation to the streets that I have laid. That particular peice of land will become the "Ward" in do time.
So here are a few things to remember:
Green Zones= Residential Lots
Blue Zones= Commercial Lots
Yellow Zones= Industrial Lots
A list of civic Buildings are given to us to choose from but there are costs involved. Civic buildings include schools, hospitals, fire departments, police stations, etc. I will explain further later how these esential services are kept sustainable with the growing population. So far I have included a doctors office, a elementary school, a police station, fire hall and a small wind power generator for power. We also need a good water supply for our city. This means a water plant needs to be included and water pipes need to be built underground throughout the city. I will save the water explanation for later.

I was reading an article in the Toronto Star today about a barber that has been in business for a long time and I remember driving by a barber shop on Bathurst one day and seeing the barber standing infront of his shop. I said to myself this guy looks like he has been in buisness a long time and guess what, its the same guy that was featured in the article.
Here is the link to the article: http://www.thestar.com/News/article/196945

York University is a fashion district located in the northern suburbs of Toronto. During certain hours, the place turns into this wonderful, interdisciplinary, multicultural, excellent post-secondary institution, attended by excellent, diverse, and intelligent students with progressive and forward thinking, such as that trashy girl with the fake Louis Vuitton purse talking on her cellphone.
York University was first established sometime in the 1960's as a hub for socialists and communist potheads fleeing their persecution and lack of popularity in the United States. It soon came to be the hub of liberalism, the far leftwing paradise of the world. With drug sales propelling students income, hideous and "modern" looking buildings erected, and "hot" chicks with fake tans populating the campus, a guy who was smoking his reefer suddenly suggested: "Dude, we should totally turn this place into a university!". And thus it came into existence, York University was established as a multi-something interdisciplinary institution with the only mall in the southernmost region of Ontario or something wonderful like that.
Now, York University is considered an top-notch "ivy" league, and the third top university in Toronto. It has become a popular insitution, with leftwing, sexually unsure individuals and student body advocating liberalism and freedom by stripping you from your common sense and coercing your conformity to the left-wing mandate of the university. Should you disobey, you will get an F on your essay you right-wing racist homophobe.
