History

New Mackinaw was founded on February 29th, 2020 on Zeta Expansion Day. The massive land rush, as well as the major connectivity issues on the day meant that EliteNeon landed some 500 meters away from his intended location. Elite was not put off, as the entire Peninsula was excellent for development. A dock was built to handle sea traffic, and a plaque was built on that dock to commemorate the founding. A City Hall was built and the city began building a road network. ArizTrad was then named Deputy Mayor. Over the next several months, several buildings would be built, however many would be destroyed and redeveloped. Elite was double-warned on May 29th for two months, and the city would slowly be developed over that period. Upon Elite's re-promotion, the final touches were made on New Mackinaw's [Councillor] bid. At Midnight EDT, August 3rd, 2020, MinecraftYoshi26 and Frumple generously gave [Councillor] endorsements. At 12:10AM EDT, New Mackinaw was officially promoted to [Councillor]. The Wikipage was revamped the following afternoon, and the Elite released his public plans for the Month. On September 12th, 2020, a snap Caucus Election was held. After Hon. ArizTrad chose to retire, 0x10 was elected Deputy Mayor of New Mackinaw. In 2022, New Mackinaw was officially revived as a town, and PtldKnight named the new Deputy Mayor.
