City of Austin Holds First Community Meeting for Montopolis Pool Project

The renovation of the Montopolis swimming pool is part of the Aquatic Vision Plan 2018a master plan used to guide Austin swimming pool upgrades and assessments.

The first part of the improvement process is collecting feedback through community engagement. The city aims to use community feedback to help identify the character of the Montopolis Pool and the amenities surrounding residents want access to.

This project will also include a permanent art installation as part of the Art in Public Places Program.

Community engagement will continue through summer 2022 with construction expected to begin in late summer 2023. The expected completion date is winter 2024-25.

The first community meeting will include an overview of the project and current designs. The project team will share the current budget and schedule, feedback from a previous community survey, concept designs developed by my architecture Marmon Mok, and an overview of the Outdoor Recreation Legacy (ORLP) partnership. ORLP funding supports the Montopolis Pool project, the city says. A grant of $3,125,000 will help offset rising construction costs in the Austin area.
