Input sought on Montopolis Center plans
The city is seeking public input on its plans for the Montopolis Recreation and Community Center at a neighborhood meeting next week. The public can review how the city’s Request for Qualifications process for professional services consultant selection works and give input and feedback on the development of the RFQ; discuss the next steps in the process of designing the center and provide general feedback. The current facility has served as a center for recreation and community events for over four decades. City officials say the building, while providing a facility for sports and recreation, is in poor condition and can no longer meet the needs of the community. The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. March 11 at the Montopolis Recreation Center Gym (2nd floor meeting room), 1200 Montopolis Drive. For more information, contact the project manager at (512) 974-7225, call Austin 311 or visit the project website.
