Sisters Park & Recreation District (SPRD) plans to repurpose the Sisters Elementary School site to become a multiuse community recreation center under a long-term lease.
Dougherty Landscape Architects (DLA), a planning firm in Eugene, has been hired by the SPRD Board of Directors to create a conceptual design for the outdoor space of the property. DLA will utilize recent work done by the City of Sisters, Sisters School District and Sisters Park & Recreation District while also offering new community engagement opportunities to inform the design.
“The outdoor space at the future community center will not only help support the community center operations but will be another outdoor recreation space for Sisters. As a current user of the fields at this site, we understand the value of the space and the need to plan any future design in a strategic and thoughtful manner,” stated Jennifer Holland, executive director of SPRD.
“It is vital that we hear from the community during this process. We know people have a lot of ideas for the future of this space and we are excited to see what DLA recommends for the development when considering all the factors at play. We hope that people take this opportunity to share their ideas and get engaged in the process,” stated Holland.
The public is invited to join SPRD and DLA on Thursday, November 2, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Coffield Center to share your ideas and thoughts on how this space can best be used to serve the community. This will be an interactive process that allow all ideas to be heard.
Participants are invited to come back to the Coffield Center Thursday, November 30, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. to provide feedback on the recommended design.
