About This Project
In 2015, Planning NEXT prepared a series of area plans for the City of Independence to help the city create lasting places that strengthen community character and enhance the livability of the city. Working in conjunction with local developers, MDC drafted new planned unit development districts and development standards to implement these plans. The PUD was selected as the best fit for Independence based on their current development review process and staff capabilities to administer regulations.
In 2017, the City of Independence contracted with MDC again to conduct a zoning analysis of the Brecksville Road Corridor and to draft another PUD for this area of the city.
MDC is also expected to provide plan review services to the city of Independence when development proposals are submitted for any of the PUD development areas.
