JOHNSTOWN, CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Bottle Works Arts Center in Johnstown officially opened their Green Roof.
Members from the Johnstown community met to celebrate the grand opening of a project that started more than 13-years ago.
The roof includes a live plant wall, gardens and seating areas. The environment friendly rooftop will serve as a conservation system, but will also be an outdoor classroom and host events.
Bottle Works Chairman, John Yerger, said the project may have taken time to complete, but everyone involved had to take a different approach to make it happen.
“The ad says, well you can’t do that in Johnstown, and I think the belief we have and I think many of the people here believe we can do these things. This is an example of what you can do.”
Yerger also added that projects like these are what will bring more businesses and people into the Johnstown area.
