The North Coast Regional Council (Dutch: North Coast Gebiedsraad; Japanese: ノースコースト地域の評議会; Hepburn: Nōsukōsuto chiiki no hyōka-kai) more commonly known as North Coast is a Metropolitan Planning Organisation of the area south of the swamp in the Central NE area of the New World.

History

The basic idea for the North Coast started floating around in mid-2017 when a WMB boat line was built between Creeperville and Hendon. Both Frosty_Creeper10 and London150 thought that their towns were pretty isolated but right after the boat line started operation, dragonbloon419 made a comment about how Creeperville and Hendon were located in the same swamp. This surprised London and Frosty and sparked a discussion between the 2 mayors about working together because of how close their towns were. The main result of this initial discussion is the FrostyRail Hendon Line. Fast forward a bit, the actual North Coast was founded on November 30, 2017 when Needn_NL proposed to the mayors of neighbouring cities Creeperville and Hendon to work together because of our close distance. They accepted and the North Coast was hastily established.

In the midst of trying to establish a base for the MPO, Mercury203 came, joined the North Coast with the town of Shadowpoint which at the time he owned. He gained power and for a short period of time, became the first president. Eventually, he was asked to leave shortly before the incidents he was notriously involved in arose. Soon after, the North Coast experienced its first difficult period when the New Indigo MPO started gaining traction and the North Coast was considering on merging with it. A statement made by Needn_NL at that time said "North Coast is deciding to which degree they should merge with New Indigo, another MPO in the region with a shorther wikipage (touché)". Frosty_Creeper10 was very against the merge and eventually, it was voted that the North Coast should stay independent. Shortly after, New Indigo collapsed.

A short while after these events, the at that time CreepeRail Hendon Line started operation. It was also at this time that the first council was established, the Transport Council. Soon after, the second difficult and most challenging period for the North Coast started. There are more details on the FrostyRail wiki page but the trouble in the North Coast started when FrostyRail wanted to leave NewRail and take the Hendon Line which it had operated before the merge, with it. The dispute took weeks to resolve and eventually ended with the Hendon Line going to FrostyRail. Tensions were still high at this time though and at its peak, every week there was a new argument involving ModernArt and the other North Coast members.

The actual conflicts ended in early 2018 but even until now, the North Coast still maintains strict regulations against companies owned by ModernArt. The next few months were mostly peaceful with some rough patches here and there but it was at this time that the North Coast developed the most and where most of what you see now in the North Coast came from. The North Coast currently has not encountered any new issues and we hope it stays that way for a very long time.

President

Because of the need to establish a base for the MPO, Needn_NL took the formal power of the MPO on November 2, 2017, after he had it already informally as host of the meetings. He has stated that as soon as the fundament of the MPO has been made, he'll resign so the first elections can happen. This hasn't happened so far, and the last few months the foundations have been swept away again.
