The Basehor city council is offering to buy a plot of land to build a new city campus between the city park and the community library, potentially resulting in a trail system that could connect all three. The council has written a letter of intent to buy the land near the corner of 158th Street and Parallel Road for $325,000 from David Jenkins of Basehor Prairie Farms. The city has been saving money for capital improvements and has $1.5 million earmarked for the city campus project, which would include a new city hall, community center, police station and potentially an EMS station.
A federal grant aimed at increasing scientific discussion in rural parts of the country was awarded to the Basehor Community Library in February and will fund two months of free community events.
