Makes me want to live there... almost...
Well, there's a very attractive and reasonably priced block of town homes going up right behind the Plaza. Two story, one and two bedroom units, private garages, large front and back yards, schools and park nearby, scheduled for completion in July. (Actually the design is still in my head, pending the Moc Athalon. I may build and post one as an entry if I see that I have the time.) Anyway, thanks to the new lake, Robertsville is developing a thriving economy, both for summer and winter entertainments. Another landing strip is being added to the community airport and plans have been finalized for a metro link to Springfield.

Wow!!! You certainly have got a plan! I used to live in a city of hills, beautiful!
Sorry to take so long in replying. I've been running around here like a chicken,etc., getting ready to move, learning how to best use the camera I got (a Canon), and trying to keep up with all the groups.
Anyway, I decided to angle the base plates to one brick up, with a balsa shim under the plate, which will still allow me to construct entrances to buldings that don't look odd. It works on paper; I just hope it works on the actual model.

Do You build any stuff with real LEGO? This would be nice to see in actual brick... :)
Yes, but I wasn't able to upload it, lacking a good camera. Now I'e got one, but Im getting in some practice with it before I upload anything. It's a Canon digital and I got it specifically for the Moc Athalon.

Attractive setting. You're building up quite a town plan with these Robertsville MOCs.
Thanks. There will be a lot of green space in Robertsville, too. Eventually, I'm planning to set up two 3x8 foot sections in an "L", with a community airport at the end of one leg and the Marina at the end of the other leg. It will be in a corner and I plan to put facade pieces along the wall edges. My major problem, though, is topological. I want the center to be on a hill, and I'm working out the math now so as to determine the best angles of grade, which will be different for each leg, since the marina leg will be higher than the airport leg. ( The level of the lake will be about five or six bricks lower than the land level on that leg.) And there will be dips and knolls here and there. Here I am, rambling again.
It's almost the same as the original layout I had those long years ago, but less cluttered. My tallest building now will be, probably, six stories, at 7 bricks per story. The fountain is right smack in the middle, with city hall across the street. (City hall is coming soon, when I can decide between the two variations that I designed; one being the original city hall built in 1902 and the other being a futuristic spacey structure with lots of glass and chrome.)
Thanks. The premise is that the Plaza is part of the city's Rejuvenation Program, which funds the renovation of old buildings and the construction of new housing. These six were in better shape than the other 12, so those got razed and parking lot put in, which I haven't shown. I've already got tenants for them, too; a couple of lawyers, a private investigator, candy shop, insurance agent and a "Tom and Larry's" (My take-off on Ben & Jerry's.) Of course, when I build it in plastic, I'll repost it. This, by the way, was the first Moc I did on LDD back in November, but that version was hideous. Flat roofs, no pools and worse. Anyway, I'm working on some city center structures right now. They'll be cmoing along shortly.
