Curators approve master plan updates

By next spring Missouri S&T should once again have a driving range on the former golf course property. That change, as well as additional improvements to athletics facilities, were part of an updated Campus Master Plan approved by the UM System Board of Curators in April.

The plan is designed to guide S&T’s long-range physical development over 20 years. It also focuses on improving safety along U.S. Highway 63, renovating and improving use of existing facilities, and reducing deferred maintenance.

The plan also calls for a new “arrival district” that involves redirecting University Drive to connect with Miner Circle to create a front door to the university. That project is in the planning phase now, but thanks to funding from a new transportation development district in Rolla, work could begin within five years.
