Columbus is trying it's best to make Downtown a central location for the population of the city. The city is taking risks by building this street in an area that doesn't flood as often, but when it does, it can be devastating. All residents on the corridor are required to purchase flood insurance. The city helps the residents paying for their first month completely. Once again, Cummins is what makes Columbus so wealthy to be able to do such things. Plus, the rapid demand for housing has people moving in desperately to anywhere they can find, and the city is doing its best to preserve single family homes.
