Sisters Moving Forward with Plans for a New Amphitheater


City leaders have been talking about it for nearly ten years, but it appears to be finally happening.

 

The city has signed a contract to buy 11 acres off of Locust Street and Barclay Drive in Sisters, for am amphitheater and a parking lot.

 

Sisters Mayor Brad Boyd explains.

 

"We've got the property under contract, which means we have an agreement to buy the property.  We have five months or 150 days to do our due diligence, get cost estimates, raise money, but after five months we get a portion of our money back.  During the first five months, we get all the money back.  So we have 140 days to look at it , can we do this, can we really pull this off?"

 

One of the goals set by the city council this January was to make the new amphitheater happen.

 

The new facility should hold 35-hundred people.
