Beloit, KS
Vision with Values

 

 

     Beloit, a community of over 4,000 residents and the county seat of Mitchell County (MC), Kansas, is located in North Central Kansas. Situated in the heart of the Solomon Valley, at the Junction of US Hwy #24 and Kansas Hwy #14 & #9, Beloit is located 27 miles west of US Hwy/ Expressway #81and 44 miles north of US Interstate #70. Due to its location and easy access, Beloit is considered to be the Queen of the Solomon Valley and has established itself as a "retail" hub. Approximately 170 businesses provide an abundance of goods and services to residents throughout the area and region.

     The Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce was originally incorporated under the Laws of the State of Kansas in April, 1902, and Chartered under the name of the "Beloit Commercial Club", with "Area" being incorporated into the name in more recent years. The original "Charter" stated "that the purpose for which this corporation is formed are to promote the business interests of the City of Beloit, induce manufacturers and other industries to locate in said City and to invite immigration to said City and to Mitchell County, Kansas, and hold and convey such real estate as may be necessary in the transaction of its said business".

     Although today's Chamber Board of Directors consists of nine members instead of seven, the Chamber's basic purpose remains the same as it did almost one hundred years ago. In recent years, the Beloit Industrial Corporation (BID) adopted the slogan "Vision with Values" for the community which also adds additional foresight to the Chamber's existence.

     The BID changed their name in 2003 to the Solomon Valley Economic Development Corp. and now encompasses all of Mitchell County.

     The Mitchell County Economic Developer, also with the Chamber, continues to play a vital and active role along with the Solomon Valley Economic Development Corp. in the area's overall development.

     Numerous brochures about the community are available. For the traveler, there are many brochures about other communities throughout the state including a Kansas Travel and Event Guide. Group tours to our area are coordinated and a step on guide provided for bus tours. Community information and a Calendar of Events are updated regularly. Hunting and fishing information, including lodging and fishing tournaments at Waconda Lake are sought by many sport enthusiasts.

     The Chamber directly sponsors, and on occasion endorses, various projects and events including seasonal and special functions and activities throughout the year, along with promoting numerous community and area activities and events.
