Basehor Chamber of Commerce / Our Purpose

Basehor Chamber of Commerce / Our Purpose

Our Purpose

The Basehor Chamber of Commerce is here to advance the general welfare, prosperity, and positive business environment of the Basehor business area by:

  • Identifying economic, commercial, industrial, agricultural, civic, educational and governmental needs and problems of the community; and
  • Initiating, implementing, and monitoring solutions to the needs and problems so identified; and
  • Stimulating and mobilizing community interest in resources to implement the solutions to the needs and problems so identified.

Basehor is consistently one of the fastest growing cities in the Kansas City metro and is poised to continue that trend. City leaders have installed the infrastructure and planning measures necessary to sustain robust growth and maintain the allure, character and charm that has made Basehor such an attractive place to live. Leavenworth County’s low cost of living is another reason Basehor has become the living room headquarters for so many – families and small businesses. You can find what you need by staying close to home. Our community-centered library offers high speed internet access, meeting rooms, books, movies, and outstanding programs for all ages.

Basehor is BEAUTIFUL

A perfect example of ‘small town’ America with thriving business and progressive values. Our idyllic community represents Leavenworth County in the middle of everything! Balancing intimate country living with urban convenience is our secret recipe!

Come visit our 15-acre forested city park, 18-hole public golf course and local history museum. Participate in our public service groups and youth sports, and take advantage of hunting and fishing spots in the area!


Our close proximity and easy access to area attractions allows business owners and families alike to call Basehor home. The nucleus of three major highway systems supports growth and attraction while maintaining easy accessibility and ultimate enjoyment!

Dining, shopping and night life complement the water park, cinema and professional sports. Community gardens, a vineyard and winery sit just outside the window during your short drive to the international airport.

Basehor is SAFE

Open land, new homes and low cost of living support families, investors and developers. Our code enforcement and community policing maintain property values and preserve tranquility. This peace of mind and low crime rate make Basehor nearly perfect!

Sleep easy knowing the police and fire department are dedicated to our community. Health care, senior care and veterinary options combine with major banking institutions allowing long-term living for the whole family.


Quality education is a foundation of pride for the Basehor-Linwood School District! With modern K-12 facilities, a virtual school, and a Career and Technical Education Center, USD 458 is a forward-thinking, respected public school district with enrollment growing nearly 4% each year.

A premium is placed on small class size, new technology, participation opportunities and a safe, nurturing atmosphere. Quality teachers produce high-achieving students who continually outperform neighboring districts.

Basehor is HAPPENING

Whether you’re local or new in town, you’re sure to notice new home construction all over the city. Basehor continues to be one of the fastest growing cities in the KC metro area.
