!!! George you answered all my queries (without even having to ask for it).George wrote:Farms, fruit plantations, forest are closing down at this case. Do you suggest other industries to do the same? Here in SPb the situation is the same. In the centre there is the old town. Then goes industry area (circle), than goes the next houses area, and now it again starts to create a new industry area outside houses area. The town looks like circles (one inside the other).athanasios wrote:Cities expand and you have houses around the industries.
In my City, being an island, limited space is a big constraint. With land prices rocketing sky high, many industries have closed & have shifted to places away from the city. Many will be tempted to ask why do they do this . Well the government gives some incentives to develop rural areas + they make lots of money just selling the land in city. I feel other industries should shutdown too like farms, fruit plantation, forests with a new one coming up near it ( in relative terms).
Another point raised will be - when do you close down an industry? The solution- when a particular industry is surrounded by town zone 4 (i mean town with concrete side walks with lamp posts). then the real estate prices will be very high & it would be highly profitable to shift the industry to another place outside the town.
Waiting for the idea to be pounded to dust!!!
