We held an open interactive session with 20 prospective members and community stakeholders to explore design approaches for a short list of potential sites in Owen Sound.
From the community, we had representation from Georgian College students, a professional architect, Saugeen First Nation, and participants ranging in age from 17-71.
Our learnings from that session will guide our site selection process and challenge Glassworks to weigh its priorities. Many priorities were considered essential, such as universal accessibility with local transportation, walkability/bike ability, proximity to the College and a natural buffer from potential or existent neighbouring developments.
The search for appropriate land continues, with some of the options considered remaining possibilities as of August 2018.
