The Hometown Foundation of Scotland, dedicated to community development, has initiated a plan to create a town run as a cooperative. Conceived in the image of Robert Owen, a founder in the socialist and cooperative movements, Owenstown is set to have 8,000 homes for families of various sizes and incomes and will strive to be carbon neutral. The cooperative will be run by a board of trustees until the town becomes sufficient enough to elect its own board members. It is currently in the planning stages and seeking community feedback.
