The new site for the first civilian colony on Soteria has been approved, near the Anguta Bay. The site has been designated as Alpha Site for construction purposes and Minister Vaber has opened it up to the public to name the first city of Soteria. Starting today the Minister’s office will be accepting naming suggestions in order to choose among them. The entire public can vote on and submit what it thinks the city should be named.
The site is being surveyed right now for the exact details of the cities layout and placement. The initial breaking of ground should occur sometime in the next week. Plans for the city, thus far, include plans for both commercial and industrial parks, hoping to attract civilian businesses and services to come to Soteria and help develop the planet. There is some pushback from naturalist groups that the planet should be left largely alone, especially after what happened to the base Nysa.
