The City of Arsenal, Utah and Surrounding

DISCLAIMER: PLEASE READ!

All of the following is a work in progress. This is not meant to be the finished product! Arsenal is located on Google Maps in the location of Crescent Junction, Utah. Obviously, as that town is super tiny, Arsenal will smother it on the map and spread out in all directions. The information below is meant to be a jumping off point to create more regions and detail the city
