SODEJUTEMIS! Hoe krijg je dat in hemelsnaam voor elkaar? Ik kan zo'n grote kaart nog niet eens tekenen!

Next city I want to map is Groenwoud.
This is a pretty large city to the east (world map can be seen here: http://www.cartographersguild.com/finished-maps/2977-valley-campaign-cartographer-3-a.html).
Groenwoud was founded near the greatest forest in the world and it has seen extensive logging for hundreds of years. It's located near a river that flows to the west, into the Valley. What once started as a humble town has grown pretty huge.
I am trying to get a picture of the city in my head and some of the buildings that it needs. Maybe you guys/girls can help me :)
Areas of interest:
- Staging areas (for transport)
- Saw mills (near the river)
- Places where logs can be put together into huge rafts.
- Maybe some walls, not sure yet. They probably should be made of logs.
- Wizard's Tower (perhaps abandoned?)
- Town Hall/Mayor's office
Just a few quick ideas. I think a stockade wall would be kind of neat.
Looking at the world map it seems that it was an outpost first. A valuable one because of the wood. So I would add a few military buildings.
The river seems to be the most important trading route and ships must be very rare and expensive. Perhaps you could add a shipyard.
Thanks for the suggestions so far. I will definitely add some military buildings, a town hall, a wizard's retreat and maybe a caravansary.
Temples and a shipyard are a no however. Worshipping a god or higher being was a quick way to get killed in this world, so there are no temples out in the open, and all shipyards are located in the Valley.
More suggestions are welcome :)
As for additional building I don't have any. As for city walls, if the city is attacked a lot, r was once attacked there might be a city wall, if not they might not have built one. Also, they might not have walled the whole city, but just a small secction of it, probably the section worth the most
Wow, that's beautiful. I'd love to walk around a city like that.
Well, I made a start with Groenwoud. This is where I am at for now...
Decided to make some changes (mainly hiding the dirt roads) and also added stuff.
