Give feedback on renaming the Metz

Wednesday, February 5, 2020 by Tai Moses

On Dec. 5, 2019, City Council passed a resolution to rename the Metz Recreation Center to Rodolfo “Rudy” Mendez Recreation Center. Community members may offer their opinions on the name change during the 90-day comment period, which runs through May 2. You may offer feedback online here or attend one of two community meetings on the renaming and give your feedback in person. The two meetings are Feb. 29, 10-11:30 a.m. and March 3, 6:30-8 p.m. and will be held at the Metz Rec Center at 2407 Canterbury St. Parks department staffers will facilitate the conversation and Austin History Center staff will discuss the lives and contributions of Hamilton M. Metz and Rudy Mendez.
