I grew up in Independence and I have to say I probably would not move back. There are many run down areas and the schools are not as top notch as some the other near-by districts. That's not to say there aren't nicer areas, there are. There is excellent shopping and restaurants as well. But, if you want an honest opinion, you would probably be better off in another close by city such as Blue Springs, Lee's Summit or Grain Valley. Good luck to you with your move!

Innerpeacezz-- you might be interested in a thread I started called Long Ago On Independence Square. I remenisce about how Indep. used to be "uptown." Before Noland Rd. had anything out there!! Where Have you decided to move? I've been back in the last few years and it's different in lots of ways, but i still like it.
