No resetting and starting again, either.

An extensive developer Q&A with Maxis published on the SimCity fan forum SimCity Hall explains that once you’ve invited another player into your multiplayer region, there’s no way to kick them out — even if they abandon their town, and crime and anarchy starts spilling over into yours.
“As of now, no there isn’t unfortunately,” is Maxis’ paraphrased response — which does leave room for a further patch to eliminate the problem.
Maxis also explained that there would be no ‘reset button’ in multiplayer, arguing that to do so would enable players to repeatedly claim the $50K starting cash boost and thus exploit the game.
SimCity is due out very soon on March 5th.
