The city of Sedona is looking for feedback from residents on Plan Uptown, a public outreach effort that will result in a plan that guides new development, redevelopment and city projects in the Uptown commercial area.
Feedback from the Plan Uptown initiative will be incorporated into in the Uptown Community Focus Area (CFA) Plan, an addendum to the voter-approved Sedona Community Plan that serves as a guide for future development of this area. The Community Plan goals include improving traffic flow, walkability, housing diversity and environmental stewardship. The CFA plan looks at how those goals can be achieved in Uptown Sedona.
Plan Uptown is an interactive website where you can see potential strategies, submit your comments, ask questions and see what others are saying. This feedback will then be used to refine the ideas into a CFA plan that will be presented at public hearings by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Sedona City Council.
“The Plan Uptown website offers an alternative to traditional public meetings that are not viable during the pandemic. This form of citizen engagement does offer advantages; for example rather than showing up for a meeting at a specific time, the information is available for a longer period of time and input can be provided from the comfort of your home,” said Cynthia Lovely, senior planner.
