AC:NL Town Ordinances Guide
 

As the mayor of your town in Animal Crossing New Leaf, you have the option to customize your
town to your liking. Enacting an ordinance can have a variety of effects on your town, depending
on the exact ordinance you sign. Before you can sign the ordinance, though, you have to have 100
mayor points. In the game, that means a 100% approval rating. You can accomplish that by doing
little things around your town like donating items to the museum, watering flowers, picking weeds,
sending letters, and introducing yourself to your villagers. Once you have that 100% approval rating,
you can sit in your mayor's chair and enact an ordinance. There can only be one ordinance in effect
at a time. Each time you enact an ordinance, you must pay 20,000 Bells, but canceling an ordinance
is free.

There are four different ordinances. Each ordinance is special and unique in its own way. They
allow you to personalize your game more towards the way you want to play.


Wealthy Town

The Bell Boom Ordinance affects the economy of your town. It raises the amount of Bells you can
receive from selling items and it raises prices. The mortgage price remains the same, but shops sell
and buy items for 20% more than they would in the regular town. This includes items on the island.
Items on the island sell for 20% more and 20% more medals can be earned from doing island tours.
A final effect of the ordinance is that Re-Tail's premium item list, a list that tells what items can be
sold for a special price, will show two items instead of one.


Beautiful Town

The Keep _Your Town Name_ Clean Ordinance keeps the town neat, free of garbage, and pretty. This
ordinance is best for players that want a nice town but may not be able to care for it every day. In the
Keep _Your Town Name_ Clean Ordinance, villagers water and plant more flowers; and weeds pop up
less often. Cockroaches don't appear at all and flowers don't wilt. This ordinance doesn't affect "lost
items," however. For the people that enjoy time-traveling, good news! With this ordinance in place,
time-traveling won't affect your town's environment any more.


In both the Wealthy and the Beautiful Towns, the regular times for the stores apply. Also, towns
don't have to have an ordinance in effect. These towns are called regular towns and they have the
regular hours for the shops and villagers. In all the ordinances, Dr. Shrunk can be visited until
8PM and K.K. Slider can be visited from 8 PM to closing time.
