News and Opinion from Sisters, Oregon

Group working on community website

Citizens for Community (C4C), and the Community Website Partnership have teamed up to create a community-driven website called Sisters Country Community Connects. The website will be a one-stop-shop for all things Sisters and its community.

It is intended to create awareness, connect and engage organizations and people. The website will be a place to access volunteers from around the community. It will also strive to create a place to connect with organizations and businesses as well as the media.

The partnership is being run by community builders from different organizations around Sisters Country. Leadership team members include people from the City of Sisters, Sisters Area Chamber of Commerce, Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC), Vision Implementation Team (VIT), executive committee, fire district, school district, park and recreation district, church, and several nonprofit organizations.

The group is hoping to launch the website in a few months time.

Churches, nonprofits, government agencies, clubs and businesses are invited to participate in the community website as partners/users, inputting their own information into the website.

The Community Website Partnership and Citizens 4 Community are looking to organizations and businesses in Sisters for feedback on what they want from a community website.

Volunteers are being sought to help create and manage the website. Tasks include: creation of content, editing, monitoring of website features/areas (calendar, directory, news, volunteer recruitment, etc).

As partners welcomed into the Community Website Partnership, a value of $8,500 in Hub team time, talent, and expertise and Ford Family Foundation funding will be committed to Sisters Country. C4C will serve as the financial sponsor to launch the website, contributing $1,200 towards the project.

People who want to get involved should contact C4C at [email protected]
