As trees are removed, work begins on the Sunset Meadows development along Highway 242 on the west side of Sisters.

Work has begun on the Sunset Meadows development by Woodhill Homes located between Felicity Lane and Highway 242. Trees are being removed to make way for street construction.

The entire 12.92 acres was approved as three parcels, one for the single-family homes and townhouses, one for apartments, and a third one on the southeast corner of the property bounded by West Hood Avenue and Highway 242, which will be an open space with trees.

During their January 19 hearing on the development, City planning commissioners approved the master plan with the condition that the multifamily apartments, which were slated for the last phase (of five) of the development, would be built as phase three, to ensure they would be available sooner.

Initially, the applicant, George Hale, announced he would appeal that decision, and it was scheduled for a de novo (new) hearing before the Sisters City Council on February 28. However, several weeks later the appeal was withdrawn. Therefore, the January 19 Planning Commission decision, with conditions, was final.

Hale indicated his partner, who is building the apartments, wanted to go ahead with the apartments to be built simultaneously with the construction of the single-family homes and townhouses. Therefore, they will be complying with the conditions of the master plan approval.

The start of work is proceeding according to the announced schedule.

The master plan calls for 71 lots for single-family detached dwellings and attached townhouses, and one large parcel for a multi-family residential development, including 72-124 apartment units. The development will also include approximately 3.17 acres of open space. Access to the units will be from two alleyways off a two-lane road running north-south through the property.
