A meeting for property owners surrounding the upcoming Delaware streetscape project will take place at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in Conference Room D at Independence City Hall, 111 E. Maple Ave.


The Delaware streetscape, from Truman Road to College Street, will replace about 1,400 feet of curbs and sidewalks, and the concrete sidewalks and curbs will be replicated to look like the existing infrastructure. The bronze historic plaques in this area also will be preserved or replaced.


A federal grant obtained by the city of Independence is paying for most of the project, but local matching sources include the street and stormwater sales taxes, as well as the City Council Goal Account.
