On Tuesday January 19 Cottonwood voted to annex the Spring Creek Ranch property along with 11 square miles of National Forest land. Please see the photo above for a depiction of the area to be annexed.
From this point on, any rezoning and eventual development will be evaluated by the City of Cottonwood. It’s likely that the developer will submit yet another proposal, since Cottonwood has expressed their belief that the project should be scaled back considerably.
Once a proposal is submitted, Keep Sedona Beautiful will evaluate it in consultation with the Cornville Community Association.
We will update our members at that time.
In order to reach the 282-acre Spring Creek parcel (shown in white in the image above), Cottonwood proposes annexing a U-shaped area of land consisting of 11 square miles of National Forest land.
Cottonwood’s has stated that their reason for wanting to annex this distant property is to set the stage for an eventual annexation of State Land Trust land shown in blue in the image. Keep Sedona Beautiful believes that this annexation is inappropriate and unwarranted.
