SHEPARD HALL RENOVATION

Renovation of the campus administration building will provide additional laboratories; the large laboratory on the first floor for entomology and fruit crop research, two areas downstairs for genetics work including the large laboratory with adjoining growth room and a graduate student data work room. A consultation room for grower and home gardener advisement will be established separate from the sales area with computer and reference materials. A storage area in the basement will be remodeled to serve as a break/meeting room. A fruit and wine sales area and wine tasting room with kitchen will be added to the building (alternate wine sales and tasting room located in Historic Directors Residence/Community Center).

HISTORIC DIRECTORS RESIDENCE/COMMUNITY CENTER
1900s period renovation of main room is planned to host events. A modern commercial kitchen will be installed for local growers and farmers and community. A wine sales and tasting area will be designated in addition or as alternate to the Shepard Hall wine sales and tasting area.

EAST AND SOUTH BOUNDARY FENCES
Fences on the east and south sides of the campus will define the boundary between the campus and the adjacent commercial district and housing development

MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE BULDING RENOVATION
The present maintenance and storage building will be renovated to include a modern shop, vehicle maintenance area, break room, and upgraded storage.

SHADEHOUSE
The addition of a new shadehouse located between the existing shadehouse and greenhouse on the east half of the greenhouse/shadehouse complex will expand the research/study area available for fruit experimentation.

SENSORY WINE GARDEN
In the open area encircled by the existing rain garden next to the Research Winery/Distillery will be developed into a sensory wine garden. A centrally located gazebo will be surrounded by a foundation planting of plants that exhibit the aroma profiles of the major wine grapes grown in Missouri: Norton/Cynthiana, Catawba, Cayuga White, Vidal Blanc, Seyval Blanc, Vignoles, Chambourcin, Chardonel, Concord et al. A grape arbor with Concord grapevines trained to it will lead to the entry of the gazebo.

OZARK ARBORETUM EXPANSION AND TRAIL
The existing Ozark Arboretum will be continue to be developed under a theme of Missouri Native Plants, however other theme areas may also be established. Tree labels and a walking trail are proposed. Additional plantings will primarily be designed and established in the newly acquired land on the east side of the main campus

LARGE EQUIPMENT/MACHINERY STORAGE BUILDING
This proposed pole barn facility will provide sheltered storage space for existing and future field research equipment.

PUBLIC RESTROOM FACILITIES ADJACENT TO HORTICULTURE GARDEN
Public restroom facilities will be constructed across the gravel road and adjacent to the Horticulture Demonstration area to be available for those attending outdoor events at the Horticulture Garden and Pavilion.

PARKING AND CIRCULATION
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 and adequate lighting for safe shared use of the facilities.

The proposed relocated main road will replace the primarily one-way road and create two-way access throughout the campus. The proposed addition of sidewalks will further enhance circulation and safety on campus.
