On a recent Saturday morning, amid the sweet smells and ruckus of the local farmers' market,  the chatter with dozens of Owen Sounders was about the Glassworks project. The possibility of developing a neighbourhood with sustainability, affordability and community for seniors, students, families and entrepreneurs designed right into the infrastructure of glassworksthe site incited such interest they got reprimanded for blocking access to the fish stand!

Their next public gathering will take place at Shorty's Bar & Grill in Owen Sound, February 28th from 7 to 9 pm for informal conversations about the project and an opportunity for Beach Community Energy Cooperative members from Owen Sound to teleconference in to the Annual General Meeting in Toronto.

Most everyone has welcomed such a thoughtful project with much anticipation, but particular excitement has been garnered from the large population of artists and life-long entrepreneurs for whom, as retirement looms, are in many cases reconsidering their finances and living arrangements. This vision answered a life-long dream for many, and for others, like one woman who had preferred the solitude of country living for generations exclaimed: "This would make me move to Owen Sound."
