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.
A variety of upscale residential housing, City services second to none, low taxes and an “Excellent” rated public school system are just a few of the reasons why Independence is such a well-respected and desired community.
With just over 7,100 residents in 9.73 square miles, the City Of Independence embraces all the character and charm of a small town community while maintaining a robust commercial setting as well.
Beautiful civic and recreation facilities offer a variety of community activities and programming year round, which brings families and neighbors together in a rich experience of community life.
We are home to an impressive corporate roster and one of the largest business corridors of the region. Corporate headquarters, service-related businesses, and light industrial companies enjoy the central location and low tax-rate that Independence offers.
As Mayor of Independence, I am very proud of this community, our people, our schools, and our businesses.
