Developers to host online ‘neighborhood meeting’

Sisters Woodlands is a 35-acre development located in the heart of Sisters, on land previously owned by the U.S. Forest Service, east of Highway 20 and south of Barclay Drive.

The Sisters Woodlands site was recently rezoned from Public Facility and Urban Area Reserve, to a mix of Multi-Family Residential, Downtown Commercial, North Sisters Business Park, and Open Space (public amenity) zoning. The land-use steps for the property are the master plan and subdivision application submittals.

“The primary goal of the project is to make the City of Sisters more welcoming and sustainable for local residents, young families, and expanding light-industrial businesses,” the development project team stated.

“The project objectives include creating a diverse mix of community-based housing opportunities for the growing population; four new light-industrial building sites; an interactive commercial marketplace; and significant public amenities for the community, including enhanced pedestrian connections into and out of town.

The project will prioritize sustainable and durable building construction, the preservation of a large portion of the existing ponderosa pine trees that currently occupy the mostly vacant site, and FireWise guidelines to enhance public safety.”
