San Pascual is the county seat of Villasana County. This page is a guide for the collaborative creation of the city.

General layout

The city is based around the coast, their is one populated island in the city limits Las Flores. Several island towns that range from a unique urban experience like Vassalport Island to a bourgeoisie neighborhood Koper Island, the rest of the islands aren't connected to the mainland by road and thus are retirement communities. The southern portion of the city is Idlewood neighborhood which is mostly poor and industrial. With a small port seeing as growth in Alamar has made the port close to irrelevant. West has a mix of incomes but is known for being lower middle class. Highlands are generally solid middle class and the Central area ranges in income as well but due to the historical and tourist setting of the city ranges from wealthy to poor the further you move away from the coast. Coastal or North is where the vast majority of the city's wealth can be found although if you go far enough north you run into poor and middle of the road neighborhoods and suburbs. Far western and southern suburbs are middle class within Villasana County but down in Prior county incomes can range but clearly skew towards the more wealthy.

Street grid

Generally only the Central area of the city is on a strict grid, with Downtown being aligned along the coast and the rest of the Central area being aligned North to South, East to West. The rest of the city may have superblocks or just be a mess of suburban sprawl. Like most Texas cities suburban sprawl is going to happen well within the city limits.

Street grid, in the suburbs

Suburban developments are based around a super-block, it would be good to study Dallas or Houston area suburbs to see the various styles to use.

Now in some areas their will be superblocks especially in Abbott and in North Port Calecs but even then by the end it should devolve into curling boulevards typical of The Woodlands, Texas and other similar places. These superblocks will be 1 mile by 1 mile to 2 miles by 2 miles or 2 miles by 1 miles in the outer parts of towns.


Principal Highway Network

So the most important highway in the modern day is the North to South highway going to Alamar, with the state's rapid growth, especially in cities like Alamar the highway will need to be the largest highway and with an international border crossing likely will need to be able to carry tons of freight. This highway will also be the location of the wealth and poverty of the city and has the best views of San Pascual's colonial skyline, and the decline in the neighborhoods of Idlewood and suburb of Maneksville.

The highway coming from Puerto Eloisa is likely going to be very pretty, with flowers and the like, and not as used as currently only Abbott is on it and Midtown West is a secondary CBD in development after Downtown. It will be the second most important highway.

The spur originating from Codiac Creek through Midtown West will have heavy traffic as it's the connection to the Southern suburbs and to the North as well and isn't as expansive as the coastal highway, this will be akin to 610 West in Houston which is the most heavily trafficked freeway in Texas, except this is the busiest part of the nearly 2 million people in the metro area. This highway will likely have the largest intersection outside of Downtown.

The loop starting in Idlewood and Ending in Abbott will be lightly trafficked and seen as a rural highway that's two lanes, it, completely passes by the city except in Cowhand and Abbott and it connects the southern suburbs to the Western ones which isn't really a needed connection. This loop will have some light industry on the outskirts of town and it will also have possible semi-rural development that you find on the edge of several Texas cities especially North Houston. This road will also be a tollway.

Jeanott Creek Parkway will be a very ugly road going straight through the poverty of the Witness and Ladron areas and only passing some of the new construction in Bonita Vista and Weston Country Club, it will be and old and neglected highway and likely the worsed to look among motorways, lots of stores along it that advertise everything and anything. It passes the airport which 90% of residents consider an underwhelming airport for a city of two million.

The highway from Witness down to Exurb #2 is very close to a rural highway and only the portions within the city limits of the towns along it give it anything more than a rural highway view. It interacts with surface streets a lot more hence the Trunk classification and it's also two to four lanes depending on the portion.

Morrison Road is a surface street interacting highway that is extremely wealthy and likely has many banks and hotels through Uptown and also expensive stores and plazas through Barclay Hill. It is known for it's beauty and Wealth and is often considered the standout street in San Pascual even though it's a highway.

North Port Calecs Highway (NPC) This is a lower middle class area that supports the city to the south, it is an almost tacky 1960s style take on the highway going straight through the center of the town with large parking lots, and shops set way back off the street, akin to Highway 6 in Alief, Houston.
