Before I get into the story telling, I wanted to say that when I first laid out the streets and creeks to make it as realistic as possible, I didn't realize it was going to take up so much land. Central Columbus ended up being one large tile, and I had to make extra tiles for the "suburban sprawl like" areas. It actually ended up fitting together really well. This is a large tile with 42,000 people in it, and I was surprised because even laying out central Columbus, with all low density and filling in all the blocks, I had a 60,000 Population. Columbus in real life is 44,000 and barely has any vacant lots or abandoned buildings.
Anyways, this is Rocky Ford Road and other roads, as it appears to be a typical suburban sprawled area.
