Mayor's Office


Welcome to the City of Independence!

As Mayor of Independence, I am very proud of this community, our people, our schools and our businesses. Centrally located at the junction of Interstates 480 and 77,  Independence is the “Heart of Cuyahoga County” and the region. A 15-minute ride connects you to destinations in Downtown Cleveland, the east and west suburbs of Cuyahoga County, and Akron-Summit County. 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 contact me with any questions you may have.
