Public Safety

In partnership with the Independence Police Department, area business districts, block watch groups, and other community entities, the NWCDC has obtained two Weed and Seed grants.

Weed and Seed is a federal program that seeks to curb crime in a community by “weeding out” offenders and by “seeding in” community building services.

As a community development corporation, the NWCDC is a major asset in the development of the quality of life in western Independence. Several of our board members were active in school boundary change that took place from 2007-2008.

The NWCDC has been a good partner with the Maywood and Englewood business district.
