University

The sector is planned to be based around the styles of New Urbanism, meaning the sector will undergo precise planning.

Plans will be released before construction commences, and MRT members are encouraged to share their opinion of the plans.

Valley

This is a planned sector in the valley adjacent to the MRT Valley Line. The sector is planned to be served by the  Monorail    , and the  Chambers Line    . It will also have multiple connections to  SubRoute    .

History

Background

During his Guest days, DJMC2000 explored a number of towns and cities on the server, including Central City, Arisa, Vermilion, Xilia, Thunderbird and Falloway, and although unsure about starting a town, he changed his mind the after seeing these magnificent creations.

Founding

Since the town was near a lake, it was decided that the lake would be named Loch Mine, and the town Lochminehead. The position and name were decided on the 9th June, and on 10th June he flew over to the area between the A4 and  V9 , and placed a claim sign on the loch.

Government and Infrastructure Construction Begins

The town hall was constructed that day, and Transport for Lochminehead, the public transport operator in the town was founded on the 12th June. Construction began on the monorail that day, with monorail technology designed quickly, and implemented. Alongside the monorail, the Greenway - in the pedestrian sector - was built, halting at the foot of the hill planned to seperate the Pedestrian and Valley sectors. On the 17th June,  V9  was successfully claimed for Lochminehead. Over the next two days, Phase 1 of the Lochminehead Monorail was completed, connecting the Government, Pedestrian and planned Valley sector to the MRT Network. The remainder of the month was spent building the Town Chambers, which will house the offices of town officials.

Pedestrian Construction Begins

At the start of July, the first northern block from the Greenway was constructed, alongside the Thames Bank Tower, before two weeks build inactivity, due to DJMC2000's Ontario holiday. On his return, the Marble Apartments were constructed. Following this construction, the Arrowhead Building and Plaza Centre began construction simultaneously. Upon completion, the Lochminehead Concert Hall was pasted in from DJMC2000's lab, and this marked the start of southern construction from the Greenway. After this, Councillor rank was acheived, and the town was officially recognised by the MRT staff. The rank marked its induction into full membership of the United Cities. The Riverfront townhouses are currently under construction.
