Age Structure Diagram
Noteworthy, Environmentally-sound Components:
Housing areas:
Size: 81 km squared
25 people per km squared= 2,025 people total

Low-density Housing
Medium-density Housing
Size: 64 km squared
270 people per km squared= 17,280 people total
High-density Housing
Size: 49 km squared
2,000 people per km squared= 98,000 people total
The diagram looks more like a developing city because younger people are more likely to move to a new environment with their families rather than older people.
Forest by the river and foothills

The low-density housing was placed above the forest by the river because less people are likely to live in the forest, without commercial areas. The people more likely to live in those places will want to get away from the urban area or they will want to ranch animals or grow crops.

Foothills are for the higher class families/people who will want to do more adventurous deeds like skiing and hiking (their vacation homes).
By the ocean and the lake near the deciduous forest

The people who live in medium-density places are more likely to live farther away from the urban area and live in smaller towns, rather than wanting to live in the urban area.
Far right in the middle of the grassland pass the river

The higher-density housings are put in this area because it is an open area where there are no obstacles in the way of building the urban area there. It is central to all the other places, such as school districts and commercial areas.
Size: 1 km squared for each plant
Size: 1 km squared for each plants
2. Wind

Reduces carbon pollution
Widely distributed
Produces no greenhouse gas emissions
Uses little land
Near the industrial/manufacturing buildings, across from the low-density houses, and nearby the urban area

Solar energy is used throughout all homes. As a result, the solar power plant was put in a location accessible to all homes in the city.
Near the urban area and across from a medical facility near the vertical river

The wind power plant provides energy for all buildings. There are much more buildings/commercial areas near the urban area (on the right side of the map).
Agricultural Areas
Three major crops grown:
1. Corn
2. Cotton
3. Wheat

Wheat and corn are town's main exports, food, and they have the largest harvested area/cash receipts from sales. Also, cotton will be used for manufacturing the town's clothes.

Irrigation for Crops
Drip-irrigation/trickle irrigation

water is delivered at or near the root zone of plants
releases drop by drop
most water-efficient method of irrigation (80-90%)
Left side of the map, between the river and forest/below the desert

The crops will be away from all the commercial areas (urban area) where it will have a lot of open space to grow the crops where the nutrients will be more suited for agriculture than in the forest or in the desert.
Municipal Waste Sites
Size:20 km squared

All the way to the left of the map, in-between the chaparral bushes and away from the city and forest

Waste sites are away from the city where the waste can be dumped away from the citizens and from the animals. Majority of animals and citizens don't live in the desert/chaparral areas.
Average MSW/person/year
1,606 pounds of waste per person
per year

Each person creates 4.40 pounds on an average a day
Recycling Facilities

Near the city/near the agriculture

The majority of the population lives near the facilities that will make it easier to influence the companies and schools to recycle.
Sewage/Wastewater Treatment Facilities
Size:1 km squared
Above the river, next to the recycling facility

The plant was put near the river because it is near the majority of the population and after the water is cleaned (chlorinated, phosphates, nitrates, waste, etc.) it can go back in the river.
Commercial Areas
Industrial/ Manufacturing Areas
Two major industries:
1. Technology
2. Clothing
Near foothills on the far right of the map

Factories and industrial areas are near the foothills in order for it to be away from the citizens and to have more room to build more factories in open space, rather than in being built in multiple places.
Spread throughout the map (near highways, buildings, population)

The citizens need gas stations and quick stores near their houses so that they can eat and have fuel to transport to places for the few people who drive cars. The bigger commercial areas are near the larger populations that will consist of malls and more stores for the citizens to spend their time.
Toxic Waste Storage Site
In the desert by no endangered species, shrubs, and lake

The toxic waste site is put in the desert so that it's not located by any living or nonliving thing that can be harmed or polluted.
Grasslands (all throughout the map) and foothills located on the left side of the river

Grasslands and foothills have grasses that are simulated through grazing that provide habitat for many animals.

Techniques used:
Ranch owners may divide up grazing areas into smaller portions separated by temporary fencing and rotate animals from one section to another to allow each section time to regrow.
Three major methods of transportation for people, goods, and materials:
1. Light Rails
-located throughout the entire city
-people don't have to pay for gas
-less pollution from less cars driving
2. Planes
-people who need to travel out of town
-transportation of materials/goods
3. Boats
-exporting goods and materials
Over the rivers near the middle lake (vertical river)

The main transportation corridors were put over the rivers in order to grant access to other residents in the town not living in the rural area to come back and forth from the rural area. The transportation corridors lead to the main areas that the other residents live.
4 k-8s:
.01 km squared each
6 high schools:
.02 km squared each
1 University:
1 km squared each

All the schools are built taller rather than longer/wider so that less area is taken up.
Near the lakes and river, below the left side of the foothills (in the urban area)

The school districts were put near where residents live in order to make it easier for families with kids to go to a school district near their home rather than taking the light rail to a farther away one. The university and more schools are put near the urban area because it is where the majority of the people live in the city.
Near schools districts, ocean, and housings

Medical facilities are near the housings and the school districts in order to provide care and comfort for the citizens. In case something happens, such as vehicle accidents and drowning, there are medical facilities near people's housings, busy streets, and the ocean so that people can get treatment right away.
Water Supply System
Number of Systems: 1

By the river near the foothills on the left side

The other two rivers were unsuitable to hold the water supply. One of the lakes holds endangered species, while the other lake holds fish. Therefore, the water supply near the foothills will have the greatest water supply that won't harm animals and that is further away from where the citizens live so they won't contaminate the water.
Municipal Parks
Size: .00109 km squared
Number of parks: 5
By school districts, urban area, and homes

Families like to go to parks together and it makes neighborhoods nicer/beautiful.Therefore, more parks are placed near the urban area as more people reside there.
State Parks
National Parks
Size: 1 km squared
Number of parks: 1
Size: 42 km squared
Number of parks: 1
Near the middle lake/near the urban area

The state park is near the middle lake and near the urban area in order to allow the citizens to come view the park.
Near the mountains near the left side of the map in the coniferous forest

: The national park is closer to the mountains and in the forest so that people have mountain scenery and can see the lake nearby.
National Monuments
National Wildlife Refuges
Size: 15 km squared
Number of Monuments: 1

Size: 35 km squared each
Number of Wildlife Refuges: 3

Mountains near the top of the map/lake/richer people area

The national monument are the mountains near the rich people/tourist area because those mountains are very beautiful in Blue Little Haven.
: Near the lake on the left side of the map, in the desert near the endangered species, and in the deciduous forest near the endangered species

: The national wildlife refuges are near the endangered species so that they can protect them. However, the town couldn't project all of the them, the endangered species on the left side of the town are given a refuge to try to recreate their population and so that they wouldn't get harmed from hunters.
National Wilderness Areas
National Forests
Timber Harvesting
Mining Areas
Two major minerals/ore mined:
1. Iron ore
-helped build factory machines, light rails, and cars
2. Copper
-helped to make solar panels
Far right near the urban area

Not too close and not too far from the population/urban area so that people can travel to other places and get there on time, but also not next to the urban area so that planes wouldn't disturb the public.
Size: 72 km squared
: By the horizontal river on the left side of the map in the coniferous forest and some in the deciduous forest

: The national forest is in two different kinds of forests and near a beautiful river scenery that people would want to see.
Size: 24 km squared each
Underneath low-density housing/near the river

The national wilderness area is near the low-density housing and near the river because people like visiting lake scenery. The beautiful forest and lake both justify why the area should be there.
Down at the bottom left side of the map by two of the national wildlife refuges

The timber harvesting is near the bottom of the map in order to get a lot of trees for their wood. It is beneath the wildlife refuge areas and the harvesting will cause no harm to the refuges. The harvesting is put there as more trees are put near the bottom of the town and the timber harvesting would be more plentiful where it was placed than elsewhere.
Types of cutting used/management:
1. Strip cutting:
strip of trees is clear cut that contour the land, with corridor thin enough to allow natural regeneration
2. Selective cutting:
cutting of intermediate aged, mature, or diseased trees in an uneven-aged forest stand, either singles or in small groups.
Final Thoughts
Endangered/Threatened Species
Fish Species
Specific step taken regarding endangered and threatened species (ET):
Build national wildlife refuges around the ET areas. As a result, this is protecting four of the endangered/threatened species.
Keep out of urban area, allowing them to grow more effectively
Couldn't save all ET species, but town has saved the majority

1. Solar energy is used throughout all homes. Solar energy is very energy-efficient and is renewable. It doesn't release any toxins/pollute the atmosphere.

2. There are many national forests and wildlife refuges that help protect the ecosystem and endangered species. These places also attract tourist.

3. Most of the population takes the light rails to wherever they need to go because they don't have to spend money on fuel, since the light rail goes to every destination in the city. As a result, with less cars on the road, there will be less pollutants in the air.

4. Recycling facilities are in reach to all places that have housings meaning that more people would want to recycle if they see, pass, or live near the recycling facilities.
Agriculture Size: 100km squared
22.4 km squared
Forest Management
Steps Taken Regarding Riparian and Coastal Areas
Two main fish species harvested:
1. Trout
2. Catfish
These are both freshwater species and are the most abundant throughout the world.
The city did not build any buildings next to the ocean. This is to not pollute the ocean any more than it is with the oil.
Mining companies are not allowed to mine near waterways or they will be fined.
Landowners of grazing land are not allowed to let animal waste go through river run-off or they will be fined.
Managed Forest:
Method where different types of people (government, agencies, families, etc.) can look over the forest. This will allow protection of the forest.
Fallen trees will be sent to timber companies so that the forest is nice and clean and so that the timber companies make money.
