Sisters Rural Advisory, Inc. / SOS

Dear Friends and neighbors,  Illnesses and travel are the reasons for our not getting back to you sooner. 

While we have nothing significant to report at this time, we do want you to know that we are continuing to keep lines of communication open with the Sisters Airport. 

We expect  to have a meeting of the Airport Committee for sometime mid March when key members are available.  At that time, representatives of the airport will have an opportunity to update us on any plans that may be of interest to our group.  

In the meantime, we invite you to contact us by replying to the email below with  comments or concerns you would like brought up at the next meeting of the Airport Committee. 

As always, we also invite new subscribers to SOS updates and volunteers to serve on the steering committee.

Thanks, and best regards,

The SOS/Skies Over Sisters steering committee:

Pat Kearney,

Marcy Edwards,

Bruce Mason,

We are pleased to announce the results of the mediation process that occurred during the summer and fall of 2017 between representatives of The Sisters Rural Advisory and Sisters Eagle Airport. Discussions have culminated in the formation of a noise abatement committee. Members of this committee include two officials from the airport, a pilot representative, and three representatives of The Sisters Rural Advisory.

The newly formed airport committee will convene quarterly for information sharing and discussion of issues. In the meantime, lines of communication are open. We believe airport officials are listening to concerns and we are developing a more positive working relationship. 

As a result of these developments, we look forward to the possibility of broadening the scope of The Sisters Rural Advisory to provide additional opportunities to help protect the environmental qualities that make the greater Sisters area a very special place to live and visit. SOS remains an initiative under the umbrella of our legal entity, The Sisters Rural Advisory. However, the SOS initiative will now be referred to as “Skies Over Sisters,” with a continued focus on minimizing negativeimpact of noise generated at the airport.
