Welcome everyone, to the new Cactus County!
I am pleased and excited to introduce to you all, The Shire's newest and most technologically advanced county. With a primary focus on space exploration, Cactus County is home to the headquarters of the newly founded and developing Shire International Space Agency!
Covering the span of a few small islands on the outskirts of The Shire, Cactus County will boast a fleet of spacecraft in low-level orbit, along with the Shire International Space Station, currently a work in progress, welcoming other nations to dock with the CCM1 (Cactus County Module 1.)
Furthermore, Cactus County will devote it's efforts to research in the name of Science and Medicine, in hopes of finding cures to terminal and life threatening diseases, and in hopes of benefiting all people of the Shire.
In keeping with preserving history, Cactus County's historical district as seen in the bottom right of the aerial photograph above, will be completely spared from future plans of development and expansion. This will be done in respect to the original founders of the region, to remember the origins of Cactus County. All other portions of the region will be demolished and rebuilt as necessary to meet the needs of our expansive scientific and medical research, as well as to pave the way to the future.
We welcome all to take a tour of the new Cactus County and, with open minds, encourage ideas for projects you might like to see us work on in the near future.

The new Cactus County is a joint effort between Humzahh, 5qu1dy, Phobiphantom, TheMysticalBard, and Gustavobc.
