This weekend, all of Austin is invited to the groundbreaking for the new Montopolis Recreation and Community Center. Not only will ground be broken, as a city press release reports, but the public will also have a chance to see a photography exhibit by Rene Renteria and help select which images will become part of the new center. Speakers will include U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Mayor Steve Adler and District 3 Council Member Pio Renteria. The new center will include youth development programs, a gym, a boxing and fitness room, and health education. Construction is slated to continue through spring 2020. The groundbreaking will take place Saturday, July 21, at 9 a.m. at the current recreation center, which is located at 1200 Montopolis Drive.
