The article informs that Independence has plans to spruce up its old downtown along Brecksville Road by building more retail and residential units and making the area more pedestrian-friendly. The city has begun seeking proposals from real estate developers to create a mixed-use development plan for at least 25 city-owned acres on a half-mile stretch of Brecksville Road between Chestnut Road and Selig Drive. The biggest parcel of the city's property is a 14-acre plot on the site of a recently vacated middle school. Ron White, economic development director for Independence, said the project could be even larger in scope, because the total area from Chestnut Road to Selig Drive measures 141 acres.
