Welcome to the City of Independence!
Centrally located at the crossroads of Interstate 480 and Interstate 77, Independence is widely known as the “Heart of Cuyahoga County” and the region. With such easy access to two interstates, a fifteen minute ride can connect you to destinations in Downtown Cleveland, the east-side suburbs, the west-side suburbs, and even the greater Akron area.
As Mayor of Independence, I am very proud of this community, our people, our schools, and our businesses. If you are considering a new residence or a location for your business, or if there is information you are seeking that you cannot locate on our website, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you may have by calling City Hall at 216.524.4131 or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
