Sunset is a very small city, and they prioritize their police force and million dollar city building over what most citizens want. They have just rid themselves of their fire department, which has saved countless lives here in Sunset, despite the protest of more than 200 citizens.

The neighborhood is quiet, but there aren't many kids, and it's mostly residential--you have to go to other cities in order to find something to do. But our city has nice parks.
I love this town, but the roads could use some work. There are terrible potholes all over 1300 N that need some help.
