If this could be buttoned up tight by a decent legal team, this would be fun times even if it didn't stand very long.
I really think that buying our own town that is already abandonded (but previously established) gives us the level of control we need. This would afford the opportunity to word the city's ordanances the way they need to be. You are correct that the legaleez makes/breaks this whole deal.
