About Us

Welcome to the City of Carbondale! We are defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. We take pride in maintaining a wholesome lifestyle, rich in cultural history, along with a deep commitment to the preservation of our environment and a progressive approach to local business. 

Carbondale, Kansas, is an ideal place to live, work and raise a family! Affordable properties, moderate taxes, available work force, regional proximity and ease of transportation make Carbondale a great place to call home for your family or business.

Carbondale rests north and south down the center of a narrow but level valley located on the northern edge of the Flint Hills. The business portion starts at the railroad and extends east towards U.S. 75, while the residence part of the city extends far back over the gently sloping hills on both sides of the valley.
