DO YOU EVER WONDER about the future of Sisters Country? What will it look like 10, 15 or 20 years from now? Will it still have all those things we love about this place? Will it be a good place to find a job, raise a family, create or recreate to your heart’s content, or retire in comfort? How can we improve it and make it even better? If we don’t think about these questions now, we may not be able to answer them down the road.

THAT’S THE REASON for Sisters Country Horizons, a visioning project sponsored by the City of Sisters in partnership with Deschutes County and Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council. Throughout 2018, we are inviting the residents of Sisters Country to join in a conversation about big dreams, bold ideas and very practical actions. There will be many ways to get involved. We invite you to be part of our future – beginning here and now.

What is Sisters Country Horizons?

“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.”

~ Margaret Wheatley
