Economic Development

Located 35 miles east of Kansas City on I-70 & MO Hwy 13, Higginsville offers an outstanding business environment with cost effective access to major markets.
State of the art municipal owned electric, water and sanitary sewer utilities are available to serve the needs of any size industry.  The independent, locally owned phone company is capable of providing the latest, most advanced technologies.
A labor study was conducted recently that found the Higginsville labor basin to have a talented, well-educated workforce.  Results show the current work force productivity to be 10% greater than the national average and 37% of the workers under-employed.
A diversified community, located in the center of Lafayette County (33,000) population, Higginsville is in the heart of a growing economic region.  Tremendous infrastructure is already in place and the state and federal governments have plans to increase the size and capacity of our two major highways.
With an alluring mix of city convenience and country charm, Higginsville provides an outstanding lifestyle that rivals any in the nation.  Excellent schools, low crime rate and reasonable housing costs are additional reasons Higginsville is a great place to call home.  The commitment has been made to manageable growth that will ensure the long-term economic vitality of Higginsville.
