My wife and I embarked on a dream five years ago. We envisioned opening up a brewery on our land, zoned as residential agricultural, where locals and tourists alike could enjoy the beer we passionately craft. Despite our tireless efforts to get the zoning changed, we've faced numerous setbacks from the township including lost files that forced us to start over.
Our proposed brewery is not just about us - it's about Bowmanville. It would be an asset to our community, supporting other local businesses by sourcing ingredients locally and attracting visitors who might otherwise pass through our town. The economic benefits of breweries are well-documented; according to Statistics Canada in 2019, small breweries contributed $5.2 billion to Canada's GDP.
Moreover, this isn't just about economics - it's also about culture and community spirit. Our brewery would provide a gathering place for locals and become a destination spot for those travelling from their cottages during summer or winter seasons.
We believe in this project wholeheartedly and have invested significant resources into making it happen. We're asking you now to support us in this journey by signing this petition so that we can bring our vision of creating an inclusive space where everyone can enjoy locally brewed beer right here in Bowmanville.
Please sign this petition urging the local authorities of Bowmanville, ON to allow the necessary zoning change for us to open up our brewery!
