Current Consultations

Oregon’s Kitchen Table creates public consultations to allow Oregonians to weigh in on policy questions posed by elected officials and public managers. Oregon’s Kitchen Table has been used at the state, local and regional levels to gather feedback from a wide variety of Oregonians on a range of topics, including state budgeting priorities, county budgeting, kindergarten readiness, school boundaries, regional economic development priorities, and values and beliefs.

Sisters Country Horizons is a visioning project to renew Sisters Country's vision for the future. Led by the City of Sisters, and supported by Deschutes County, Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council and other partners, this project is gathering ideas from people across Sisters Country to develop a shared vision for Sisters Country – and a plan to achieve it. Sisters Country is that part of Deschutes County, Oregon that includes the City of Sisters and surrounding smaller unincorporated communities and residential areas, ranches, and farms.  As part of this visioning process, the Sisters Country Horizons team wants to hear from people who live in, work in, or frequently visit this area.  There are many different ways for people to share what they value and believe about the future of Sisters Country.  The Kitchen Table Conversations - designed by Oregon’s Kitchen Table - are one way that community members can come together to have a discussion using a few simple guiding questions from the comfort of your own homes.  You can also participate at one of the dozen community meetings occurring from mid-April to mid-May throughout Sisters Country or respond to an online survey developed and hosted by the Sisters Country Horizons team. 

Visit for more information and a calendar of events you might want to participate in over the coming months.  Input gathered during these events will go into a vision action plan, which will be completed by January 2019.  This plan will help inform and guide the decisions and actions of the City, County, COIC and other community partners going forward.
