Big Enough to Serve You…Small Enough to Want To!
The City of Mission is located in northeastern Johnson County, Kansas - a suburban area of the Kansas City metropolitan area. This area of eastern Kansas ranks as one of the top growth areas in the State, and the country. The City lies adjacent to a major transportation corridor, Interstate 35, and is quite accessible to the entire metropolitan area. Mission boasts a population of slightly under 10,000, and covers an area of 2.75 miles - about 95% of which is developed.
The daytime population of the City is approximately 50,000. The population increases as a result of the large number of people who come into the City to work, conduct business, and to shop. These individuals work in a variety of businesses located throughout the City including car dealerships, health care facilities, laboratories, the Shawnee Mission Main Post Office, Johnson County Offices, State of Kansas Drivers License Bureau, a number of excellent restaurants and many fast food establishments, grocery chains, and a host of other employers. The City is also undergoing major redevelopment. The Gateway Project will redevelop the former Mission Mall site with mixed use development, and Mission's Downtown District is being revitalized inconjunction with the Rock Creek Floodplain Control Project.
