The homes in Independence Park are actually single-family detached condominiums.

The Independence condo association (HOA) takes care of the front and side yards of the homes and other common areas of the subdivision. Fees in late 2012 were $80/month.
Independence Park homes have a classic style reminiscent of a day gone by when homes had front porches. They are painted in various pastel shades. The old style is not evident in the interior features of the homes. They are thoroughly modern homes with many standard features including granite countertops and ceramic backsplashes in the kitchens, 8' inside doors, front and side sprinkler systems, and energy efficiency features that include Low E2 windows, 14.0 SEER efficiency Carrier A/C systems, and radiant barrier roof decking. The homes have single car garages. Parking on the wide streets of Independence is allowed only on one side of the street.
