Expectations are high for Jordan Yin, the only actual urban planning expert among the regional mayors. Blue Lake is currently stable with a population of 41,000, with roundabouts successfully routing traffic to its distinct regions.

With over 10,000 unfilled jobs, however, the city is in need of a population boom, though Jordan may instead plan to keep the town profitable at medium density. In response to questioning, the Blue Lake mayor's office released the following statement today:

"The monster ate my garbage and died. Hahahaha."

County administration will publish additional comments soon, including Jordan's thoughts on the city planning tools provided by the Department of EA.
