Dozens of people came out in the cold in Harris County for an event that will remember a legend in Houston.
It was the groundbreaking for the new Barbara Jordan Community Center.
The event was held Thursday morning at the old Jordan facility on Winfield Road.
Harris County Commissioner Gene Locke says he wanted to fulfill the promise made by late Commissioner El Franco Lee.
Lee wanted a new community center for those who live in the area.
Construction on the project is set to start in January while the completion dates is expected to be sometime in October.
The cost of the new facility which will be open to the public is $4.1 million.
