Washington County Extension

Monroe, Ohio

The Washington County Extension Office involved master planning their 6 are parcel for current and future use.  The site holds a new 11,000 sf facility and many site features including a ham house, walking trails and an outdoor pavilion.  Future items such as beekeeping grove, fruit orchard, team building activity space such as C.O.P.E. ropes course and an archery and shooting sports area are being planned for in a thoughtful way.  Once funding becomes available for all of these features, the plan will be in place for implementation. The building includes offices for all five agents plus space for a future agent.  Office needs and storage needs were accommodated.  A large Community Room was planned with a stage and storage/support areas.  This room can be divided in to two or three spaces for use with smaller groups. A project room accessible from the outside was designed to be cleanable with a hose after educational programs such as sheep shearing, tree grafting and the like.
