Town Ordinances

A town ordinance is a rule that changes certain things about your town. You can enact a town ordinance by sitting in your mayor chair and asking Isabelle about town ordinances. There are four ordinances: Beautiful Town, Early Bird Town, Nightlife Town, and Luxury Town. This page explains how to set a town ordinance and the effects that each ordinance has.

How to Enact a Town Ordinance

To sign a town ordinance into law, you must first earn 100 mayor points. Then, when you sit in your mayor chair, you can choose to set a town ordinance. Whenever you change the town ordinance, you must pay 20,000 bells.
