First up I'd begin by putting up some building restrictions. Currently it is a building free for all, were if you want to build something you just do. This does not work for towns. See Newcraft from the old map [Ended up dying, then getting TNT'd as it was too close to Duskville. On top of that the town had no real appeal as it was just a mishmash of random buildings people wanted to build]. This would likely include limiting plot sizes, putting a height limit for above and below ground housing, and limiting what the exterior of buildings can contain, establishing a clear theme for Horizon.
This should help twofold:
1) Town planning is now easier. You have predefined plots laid out, and you know where you can expand, and where you can't.
2) It will make Horizon more presentable, improving the odds that people will choose to live there over anywhere else. Whilst having the ability to freely build what you like seems like a nice idea, when you build your epic house that you think looks awesome, but right across the road there's a giant Netherbrick and Stone house that you think looks awful, that you have to see each and every time you visit your house, you begin to wish you'd built elsewhere.

Jocc your idea and comment has been Approved! by me and peace we feel that these are important and outstanding problems that need to be fixed, this is what we have talked about ans the conculsions we have come to:

-The Style of the town will be biased on 17th-18th Century buildings. We don’t want a medieval style town as we think it’s too over used.
-We have decided to layout the areas of different districts as it wasn’t done when the town was first made. Economic, Housing, City Council/Political, industrial (Farming, mining, etc.), etc.

They want to refurbish it or just build a new one.

Ok i have some really good ideas for the library but it will take lots of materials and lots of room. for defence i will put up some chest for the town guard with stone weapons and food in when there is an attack and guards are cout out with no weapons.
