The City of Independence would like to understand your downtown parking experience and how you would like it to improve in the future.
The Downtown Parking Experience project hopes to anticipate our city’s current and future parking needs in a way that promotes the vibrancy of Downtown Independence.

The project will :

  • Inventory current parking spaces and use patterns
  • Evaluate existing plans and parking regulations
  • Work to ensure an adequate number of spaces are available.
