SISTERS, OR --  The Department of State Lands is considering selling 357 acres of forest land northeast of Sisters. Clara Taylor, a property analyst for the state, says they're acting on a recommendation made several years ago.

 

"Federal government required the state to take the 16th and 36th sections of every town, or in other words two square miles, and use that land to benefit Oregon's public schools, for kindergarten through first grade. So all of this land has benefited the Common School Fund."

 

The state has already conducted endangered species and cultural resource studies on the four parcels located in different areas of Fremont Canyon. Public comment on the proposed sale will be accepted until January 11.  Taylor says if the sales are approved, they wouldn't happen until next fall, or possibly spring of 2016.
