SISTERS, OR -- A Sisters community initiative is launching the next phase of activities designed to gauge public sentiment about the area. Sisters Country Horizons will hold a series of community meetings starting Thursday. "We want to know their opinions on what they would like to see for their community, how they would like it to grow and hopefully prosper into the future," says Sisters Community Development Director Patrick Davenport.
Sisters Country Horizons launched an online survey in March
; it continues through the end of this month. Interviews with city leaders were conducted in February and March, as well. Feedback from upcoming meetings will be compiled with the results of those other activities to develop a vision for future growth. "A lot of people – new folks – have moved to town, and our community is transitioning very rapidly. And, of course, our regional circumstances are evolving as well, and people’s opinions are evolving," Davenport tells KBND News, "So, this is really just the beginning of a multi-year process to start implementing what the community desires for their future."
The first of about a dozen community meetings starts at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Sisters Camp Sherman Fire District. Others are planned at other locations in Sisters, Plainview and Tollgate, over the next month. Click HERE
