Missouri State University

FY 2008


This proposed facility will include a storefront sales area with adjoining cooler and apple grading area. It will serve as an example of a sales and storage area suitable for small direct market producers. The building will be used for the sale of extra fruit from the research and demonstration plantings, and will be featured on the annual elementary school tours.

This proposed facility of 5,184 square feet will provide sheltered storage space for existing and future field research equipment and expanded shop area.

Improvements to the parking lot east of the Classroom Building and west of the Research Winery and Fruit Processing Education Building will provide paved parking for shared use of the facilities. The present Vehicle Storage Building (directly north of the Classroom Building - not pictured on the map) will be relocated to the southeast part of the campus with an addition for grounds maintenance use.
A second proposed parking lot west of Highway 95 will provide parking for staff and the public visiting the Horticulture Demonstration Area and proposed Fruit Sales Building.
A third proposed parking lot at the northeast corner of campus will provide for overflow parking.
The proposed relocated main road will replace the primarily one-way road and create two-way access throughout the campus. An additional road on the east side of campus will provide access to the facilities to be constructed in that area. The proposed addition of sidewalks will further enhance circulation and safety on campus.

The addition of an apartment style campus dormitory with the capacity of 10-20 people will provide housing for non-commuting students and visiting research personnel.
