How to get my city growing faster.
First of all lower your taxes. No one likes to live in a rundown area with sky high taxes. Your city will face a mass exodus if you donít lower your taxes every now and then.
Also try to build more roads and mass trainsit terminals in places where you think, or there, is a moderate to high amount of traffic. No matter what, always avoid building highways, because they seem to generate traffic out of nowhere.
Improve your water system - Your growth wonít really be hurt by a lack of water, but your tax base will be smaller than if you did properly water your city.
Intersperse zones - Would you really want to work 60 miles away from your home? Well Sims donít want to either, so place industry and commercial zones close together.
Build airports and seaports - Youíll boost the demand for commercial or industrial if your airport is large enough. Remember place your airport far away from the residential zones, no one ever likes to live near a loud and chaotic airport.
Build road and rail connections - Your industry and commerce must have access the rest of the world to peddle their goods, and services. They do pretty the same thing as the airports and seaports.
Lower pollution/crime/traffic - Well this one is a given, I mean really who wants to live next to a rotting cesspool of filth or the neighborhood crack house. The traffic canít really be avoided, but itís a good sign, because itís a sign your city is growing.
Improve education/health - When your looking for a new house one of the first things look for is the area. Then you check out if the school district is good. I personally would not want to go to an overcrowded school with incompetent teachers.
