Public works project

Meeting a project's donation goal
Public works projects are a feature new to Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Projects allow the player to customize their town by adding new buildings, upgrading existing buildings, and adding various features to areas throughout their town. These projects are initiated by the player, who now takes on the role as the mayor. The concept is similar to the ability for the player to use the town fund in Animal Crossing: City Folk to install a new bridge, fountain, and a windmill or lighthouse; in New Leaf, however, the options are more diverse and customizable.

Initiating a project[edit]

Ceremony celebrating a completed project

Only one project can be worked on at a time. Players unlock projects when villagers want to speak to players. Once projects are unlocked, the player may choose a location to start a selected project: Isabelle, the mayor's assistant, will follow the player until he or she chooses a location for the project. Isabelle will either approve the location or state why the location is not adequate (not enough space, too close to a home, etc.). Public works projects cannot be built on the beach.

Once the location is set, the area is fenced , and Lloid appears. If the project has no fence (such as a Main Street upgrade), Lloid will be in the Train Station or Town Hall (the latter only for the Town Hall renovation). Once spoken to, Lloid will state how many bells are required to build the project. Players are mostly responsible for the funding, though villagers may sometimes contribute. Once funding has been completed, the new structure will appear the next day.

Once a project is fully completed, a ceremony will be held in which Isabelle announces the completion of the project to villagers and the player. The Reset Center is an exception; it has no completion ceremony. After this, the player may start work on a new project.

Most projects can be demolished for 10% of their erection fee, by speaking to Isabelle while no other public works project business is going on. Major landmarks, such as the Police Station and the Campsite,however, cannot be demolished.

List of projects[edit]

Facilities[edit]

These cannot be demolished, and only one of each may be built. The Dream Suite, Fortune Shop and Museum expansion appear on Main Street, instead of in town.

Trivia[edit]

  • During a possible conversation the player may listen in on between two cranky villagers, one will claim to have made a public works project suggestion to Isabelle for a drive-in theater. According to the villager, it does not pass as Isabelle did not understand what a "drive-in" is.
