Abstract or Summary
  • While many small towns today find themselves struggling in the face of economic stagnation or decline, others must deal with rapid growth and the threat it poses to their valued quality of life. The small central Oregon town of Sisters offers an example of a town whose previously declining economy was revitalized and has since expanded rapidly in response to tourism development and a growing number of area residents. Today, there are over 150 businesses and services in this town of approximately 700 residents. Impacts resulting from the area's growth and development in conjunction with mounting pressure for further expansion of the town's business sector have led to disagreement among Sisters' residents regarding the town's future. Sisters' experience raises a number of questions with respect to how much control a town has over its destiny once growth has begun, and who should determine how much growth is "desirable".
