A wondrous idea that will surely bring advantages for our fledgeling town.
The mayor immediately contacts a cooking school and ask them to set up shop here. Of course they think it is silly setting up shop in a town of 1 person but the mayor convinces them with $10'000
The town now have a cooking school. It also acts as a normal school. There are 2 people who run it and also live in the building for now. They pay tax and are paid by the company.
As a result of his persistence in getting something that will improve the lives of citizens the mayor gains some humanitarian view. He can now see homeless people.
Jetroid, Not a Moron
I'll be honest. I have NO IDEA how I would go about converting this lovable metal eyeball into basic colour shapes which seem to lack eyes, so I'm not going to bother. :fuckley:
: Oh hey! How's it goin'? Let's see here... Hmm... Well, we've got land, and uh, a water tower, two houses, some cars, and what looks like a bus stop. Not exactly a lot there. Although don't be deterred, of course. You can get somewhere from nowhere. Just have to head north... Anyway! This old place needs a name. Something catchy, something like 'Zoomtown'. But not Zoomtown, though, as quite frankly, that's ridiculous. The only people you'd attract with a name like that is children...
I think we should call the town...
You know what else we need? Orchards. To grow apples in. Apples are good - only problem goes is that sometimes the trees get inhabited by birds, which, quite frankly, is terrifying.

Ah, Mr Mayor, I assume, I would like to request a moment of your time. You see, this land is home to many rare and endangered birds, and it is of the utmost importance that you take proper precautions to conserve them, and all manner of flying wonders that grace these lands. Also, for heaven's sake sir, build some houses, or at least some nests suitable for... Never-mind, build houses.
As conflicting as these statements are, the mayor decides they are both valid.
With a cost of $5'500 the town now has both a bird sanctuary and an experimental orchard run. Hopefully the orchard will prosper in order to convice farmers that this isn't actually a desert!
Greenpeace approves of this move and have decreed the mayor as 'on the right track to a sustainable and well thought out paradise'
They just warn you about pesticides.
With all this development you have attracted 1 person to your town. A farmer who is running the trial orchard for you.

Tally Ho! Looks like you've a Fine Budding town here Good Chap. Ah, but what is a Town without a name. Henceforth, This Place Shall be Known as Crumpet Rock. Now, In Accordance with the By-Laws of The United Questdom, all New Townships must have at LEAST one person of Potatish Descent and/or Poor Breeding for the Noble People to look Down Upon. In Absense of such a Low-bred Person, One with a Potatish Name will Suffice. I Suggest Hiring A Suitable Chap as the Town's Postmaster. If Nothing else, This will allow the Town's wealthy to (if you'll pardon the expression) "Hawk Loogies" at the Chap without having to go through the rigmarole of seeking him out. As a final Note, good Sir, Do try and find a Means of Townwide Income. Perchance a Petrol Station, for the conveniance of those hopelessly lost?
Having said My Peice, I shall be Off. Ta rah, Toodle-pip and Tally-ho!
Yes, a postmaster will be something you need.
You contact an old friend of yours, Patrick by name. He is a professor in post, a master in mail, a doctor of delivering and a sir of sorting.
He is the one and only postman Pat.
He is on the verge of retiring from handling the entire post force of the capital city and decides that this new town will be a great place for him to settle down into a quieter life.
The town gains 1 person. He lives in the post office (red building furthest from orchard.)

I'd suggest one of the names for voting could be Ashton.
Voting? This isn't a democracy. This is private property don't you know?
However, Ashton sounds like a swell name for a budding city just like this one. And as such the town is named Ashton.
