"Independence became a Village in April 1914, and a City in November 1960. In the early 1960's, LTV Steel's Technical Center became the first corporate office to locate within the City. With the construction of the I-77 and I-480 interchange at Rockside Road, Independence became a strategic location for growing and established businesses to occupy office space. Rockside Road became home to more regional and national companies than any other suburb in Greater Cleveland. As the business community grew, so, too, did government. In 1982 a state-of-the-art City Hall, the beginning of a municipal complex located on Brecksville Road, was dedicated. Today's key to success for Independence is maintaining a financial balance, having top-notch public services, modern municipal facilities, superior transportation access and quality schools, making Independence an appealing place to work, live, visit and raise a family within the "Heart of Cuyahoga County." -The City of Independence
