Buchanan County Agri-Business Expo Center

                                       Buchanan County Agri-Business Expo Center~Proposed

Buchanan County is proposing to showcase our agricultural heritage.  The facility would sit on 43 Acres in Buchanan County at the intersection of I-29 and Highway 169 North.

The facility would provide a venue to display and educate the public on past, present and future agricultural activities.  The center would be one structure that would include several components.

Total square footage would be 249,400 under one roof.

(1)  The Expo Center would include a Expo floor, class rooms, lobbies, offices and kitchen, with a combined space of 52,000 square feet.

(2)  The Arena would have a total of 93,600 square feet that would include Arena Floor and seating.

(3)  Stalls and warm-up area with 648 stalls, plus Locker rooms, restrooms and wash racks.

(4) University of Missouri Extension Center would have a office and meeting area also.

Additional features proposed would include;

(1)  R.V. park that would have approximately 140 spaces designed into an existing wooded area.

(2)  A convenience store that would include showerlaundry facilities to serve the R.V. campers.

(3)  An area dedicated for parking for trucks and trailers.

Buchanan County is also working with the State Emergency Management Department to designate this facility as a "Safe Room" which could be a location that people could go to in case of an emergency (tornado)

This looks like a great project for the community and region, and will showcase what your area is all about.  The US has such a diverse and unique country.  It is fun to find all the different areas of our country.

Hi Charlie!

It is very interesting to learn about the other cities and what they have going on in their communities. 

This should be very nice for our community when it is completed, holding many types of activities.
