My first impression was that it looked clean and professional.
Upon looking at it more closely, I found many elements interfered with each other such as the paking icons.
Too many competing strident colors also such as your magenta line competing with the electric blue of your river outline. you should use faded and bright colors to create layers of information
Small detail: when the map loads it is zoomed on the airport and I think that is the worst plane icon I,ve ever seen.
Anyways it sure is better than anything I,ve done for amusement. I think the overall look is very
good. Where it needs work is in the finicky details- making sure that all the little things are consistent, harmonious and non overlapping etc. etc. It is this level of mapwork that is demanding, long and often tedious. It is here that your reason for making a map has to match the comittment you want to put into it. Like any art, mapmaking is 2% inspiration 98% perspiration
Hope this helps.
PS. when you say there is a large space around the town's boarders
I take it you meant to say outside the town's borders
and not that it's resident are quite fat
