Town as theme park

The commercial district of Sisters, Oregon, has a design code intended to make it look something like a preserved and restored 19th-century western town. Mmmmmm, okay. At least the parking is free.


  1. Oakley has a development plan based precisely on Sisters. The town council made a trip there a couple years ago for inspiration. There is space here and plans laid, just waiting for a better economic reality.

  2. So then they'll be a sister city with Sisters? Or maybe a step-sister city?

  3. The only evidence of the intent to copy Sisters is the redo of the exterior of our Cattlemen's Hall where we will have the reunion.
