Learn About Brecksville Road Zoning Analysis


Project Introduction

The City of Independence is conducting a zoning analysis project for Brecksville Road, between Rockside Road and I-480. The zoning analysis will include a review of the existing development regulations along with recommendations for new zoning districts or tools, which would allow for more predictability in the development review process and accommodation of future development in this area.

There was an initial public meeting to discuss the project on May 10, 2017.  Meeting participants were presented with information about the development history, existing conditions and current development trends affecting this area. Meeting participants were also provided with an opportunity to share their thoughts, comments, and ideas so that as the City moves forward with this analysis, the goals of the district stakeholders are at the forefront of the process.

This webpage will be the repository for all information related to the zoning analysis project. The content on this webpage will be updated as new material and information becomes available.
