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.
