On behalf of the city of Lansing, Kansas, we would like to welcome you to "the City With a Future." We are truly proud of our rapidly expanding community. We welcome all visitors, new residents and businesses which choose to become part of this great community. 

Lansing is located only 25 minutes from Kansas City International Airport and 15 minutes from a major interstate highway. Lansing has a small town atmosphere with large city accessibility.

Some of Lansing's recent and current projects:
  • New Municipal Facility
  • New City Park
  • New Community Library

Additionally, the city of Lansing was selected in 2009 by Money Magazine as one of the top 100 best places to live in the U.S. Once you visit our city and meet its residents and business owners, we think you will agree.

There are several housing projects underway with a vast array of pricing and styling. Complimenting these enhancements is the excellent school system serving this community. Lansing voters approved building a new multi-million dollar state-of-the-art high school that opened for the 2015-2016 school year.

Lansing's Mission Statement

“We are a group of interested and involved residents who have been elected to put forth our best efforts to ensure a quality standard of living for every citizen who lives in Lansing. We deliver services that are equal, fair, and provide economic opportunity to all citizens.

As a governing body, we are committed to improving the quality of life and importance of family as a core value of all our residents without burdensome taxes or excessive government intervention. Our philosophy exudes consistency, balance, professionalism, a commitment towards home rule, and encouragement of city growth through freedom of actions coupled with responsibility.”
