Friday, October 29, 2021 by Tai Moses

The Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting an open house at the historic Montopolis Negro School to give community members “the opportunity to see the school as it is today and imagine what could be possible,” according to the news release about the event. Residents are invited to share their memories and stories of the school as well as their ideas for future uses for the property. Staffers from the Transportation Department will also attend the event “to discuss and answer questions around the city-owned parcel adjacent to the historic school property, which was acquired many years ago for future transportation purposes.” Saturday, Nov. 6, 10 a.m.-noon, 500 Montopolis Drive. Sign up to receive updates about the project.
