Public Works are the main way the mayor player can influence the town. Through the public works projects, the mayor can initiate a number of construction projects for different purposes, such as bringing new shops and services to the town, establishing new infrastructure like bridges or benches, developing park areas with fountains and hedges, or erecting a number of iconic monuments.
To begin a new public works project, the mayor must sit in the mayor's chair in the Town Hall and ask Isabelle to show them the list of available public works. Once a project has been selected from that list, Isabelle will ask the mayor to lead her to the spot in town that they would like to place the project. If the location chosen is suitable for the project, Isabelle will show a sample of what the project will look like upon completion. If the location is unsuitable, she will give the space requirements to the player so that a better spot can be chosen. Once a location has been decided upon, all plants and buried items in the area will be removed, and Isabelle will rope off the area and place the town gyroid, Lloid, in charge of collecting donations on-site. Citizens of the town can and often will donate money to the projects, but donations can be few and far between. It is advisable for the mayor player to fund the majority of the project themselves, or split the cost with other players for the sake of completing the project in a useful amount of time. Once the funding goal for a project has been met, the project will be completed the next day.
Upon completion of an active project, when the mayor next visits the town hall and sits in their chair, Isabelle will ask them if they would like to participate in a quick ceremony to celebrate the completion of the project. After attending the ceremony, the mayor's next conversation with Isabelle will be back to normal. Some public works projects cannot be demolished once completed, like the second floor of the Museum. They can be organized into two categories: Major Public Works, and Minor Public Works.
