North Lake

Sign in to follow this  


Lets fast forward in time here. You can see the city of Hope on the right of the screen. North lake, on the left, has been completed for over a year. The smaller Shaefer Lake on the right has been there for years. Farmers of course aren't as enthusiastic about this expansion as residents of the downtown area are. North Lake was built by the city of Columbus along Haw creek to reduce flood levels near Downtown Columbus, and south of Columbus as well. The city is hoping to finally start expanding along what was once flood plains. Just to be careful, the city is waiting until the next flood season to see if it will be ok. The city is tired of destroying city blocks of historic neighborhoods to meet up with the demand for housing.

Columbus also purchased land on the east side of the lake for urban expansion. This community of Columbus is called North Lake, obviously named after the lake. Construction first started by building North Lake Boulevard, which runs between CR 600 N and CR 700 N. Currently 13,000 sims live in this addition. CR 600 N is a major east and west route in northern Bartholomew County. Hope doesn't have a marked highway that goes east and west, so CR 600 N was built all the way to Marr Road years ago for better transportation to the city. CR 600 N was renamed Hoosier Drive along the developed area in North Lake.
