Andes Works! is a collection of Andes residents, both long-timers and newcomers, who are joining together to create an economy that benefits all of our residents.
We came together to protect our amazing town from the effects of becoming industrialized by gas hydro-fracking and realized that we need to help ourselves and each other find other solutions to our economic needs.
We will be working to brainstorm with our neighbors to build out tangible, doable plans to support area businesses, farmers, entrepreneurs, and workforce; bring tangible projects to the community that meet our needs, build an economy that entices young families to move to the area, and more, even as we protect all that we hold dear here — our clean air, our water, our quiet rural landscape, our small town.
We believe that WE are the solution, not outside companies that have no real investment in our way of life. Join us! Whether it’s a conversation with your neighbor, a chance to listen to a speaker, an opportunity to share your ideas about what will make Andes better, we need you!
