City of Independence Master Plan

Beginning with an understanding of the project area through site visits, aerial and ground photography, and community input, our planning incorporated existing and future land use and development.  The plan dealt with programming concerns, including development intensity, marketability of potential uses, buildings, parking and landscaping.  It also reflected both short-term and long-term interests of the City.  Using “Target areas” we were able to graphically detail what will occur in specific areas with regards to zoning, vehicular access, land uses, building size and pedestrian use.
