Independence Comprehensive Plan Update


The City of Independence is updating the Comprehensive Plan; the first update since 1993. The Comprehensive Plan is a document that identifies the vision, values and priorities of a community for the next 15-20 years.

The Plan is called “Imagine Independence 2040 – A Community Vision”. The first and most important step is listening to residents, and getting your opinion, to ensure we are on the right track.
