In 2014, the City of Basehor acquired approximately 37.6 acres of land starting at the southwest corner of 158th Street and Parallel Road, continuing along 158th Street south to the Basehor Community Library and Gray Hawk Elementary. The property then extends from 158th Street to Garden Parkway respectively. This property is the future home of the Civic Campus.
What is the Civic Campus? The City of Basehor Governing Body has set the vision for this property to be a multiuse campus featuring amenities for the community, including a splash pad, an event lawn, and other civic facilities.
In January of 2022, the City Council authorized engineering for the trail and stormwater amenities at the Civic Campus. Later in 2022, the City organized opportunities for the community to give input on this project, including an Open House and a portal through which community members could give feedback.
We are very excited to start this incredibly exciting project for our community. This project ties in with the trail improvements underway along 158th and Parallel and promotes our effort to provide safe connectivity in Basehor.
In Phase I, the City will begin the mass grading at the site needed for the pond, the trail network, the splash pad, and the event lawn.
