For a town that is just shy of 25,000 people, Ottumwa, Iowa is making waves. While other smaller towns all across the states are going through hard times and struggling with growth, Ottumwa is different. Not only did they recognize the signs several years ago that their downtown was in need of repair, but the town put together a plan and set forth in making it happen.
