The groundbreaking yesterday (Thurs) marks the start of the construction phase of the new 18-thousand square foot state of the art facility.
Superintendent Rick Molitor says people are looking forwrd to the center.
"It's really exciting. It really is highlighting the first performing arts center in Jefferson County. It will have just under 600 seats and it'll be an auditorium for performances of musicians, art performances and plays."
The athletic facilities should be done by late August of 2014 -- with the Perfomring Arts Center to be finished by that fall.
This project is being funded by a 26 million dollar bond that was approved by voters last year.
