of the land. You are working with a partner and developing a plot of forest
land next to the Williamsport river. As land owners, you received 3 million
dollars to use to develop and maintain your property. The land can not
include malls, stadiums, and factories that take up a lot of space due to the
size of the land given. The land use was supposed to be planned out first.
