If all goes as planned, the UMR Golf Course will become a state-of-the-art research and technology park over the next 10 years, complete with green space and walking trails.

In a plan approved by the University of Missouri Board of Curators at its April 5-6 meeting in Rolla, UMR will begin developing plans to convert the 56-acre property into a place that will provide space, access to UMR researchers and facilities, and business support services that help companies transfer knowledge from the university to the marketplace. The research park would also help foster economic development in the region.

Current plans call for developing a comprehensive master plan with broad community input, establishing restrictive covenants to guide future development and creating a marketing and finance plan. These plans will be submitted to the Board of Curators for final approval at a future board meeting.
