You could try Purge Unused Objects. And look through the file's Resource Browser to find any symbols or textures you don't need.

I checked on your drawing and it looks like vegetation is what's increasing the file's size, I wonder what type of symbol you use for trees and bushes? try switching your symbols for some less rich on detail, maybe with plain 2d polygons and some transparency, remember that at the scale you are presenting this plot showing every leaf is not necessary.

Make a duplicate of your file, make the changes, save it and let us know what happened to the size of the file
