Fairmount sidewalk project completed

Students, teachers, parents and community leaders with the City of Independence and LINC celebrated the completion of a new sidewalk around Fairmount Elementary School in early December.  The sidewalk also leads from the school to Fairmount Park and increases access for all children to utilize the park. The celebration signals the end of an almost two year project to get the new sidewalk.

Homebuyer Education Program

Buying a home is one of the largest investments that one may make in their life. So why not be prepared and be educated before beginning the process? A new homebuyer education class will be offered to help prospective homebuyers learn more about managing their money, what they can afford, mortgages and loan products, and understanding credit scores.
