The City of Sedona is undertaking a community planning process to look at how to make Sedona more walkable and bikeable. The result will be a Master Plan, which will serve as a guiding document to outline the steps to achieving a more walking and biking friendly city.
In doing this, we are talking with residents to learn:
• Where are you currently walking and biking?
• Where do you wish you could walk or bike and why?
o What needs to be addressed in order to get you from point A to point B?
We want to hear your ideas!
Please share your ideas on new or improved sidewalks, pathways, trails, or trail access in the City of Sedona; you may also sign up to be on the email list to receive updates on the planning process, such as public workshops. Use the comment form to submit your ideas:
We are also working hard to get an online mapping tool for the community to be able to draw in their walking and biking needs, so stay tuned for this website to be updated.
We expect this planning process to take nine months. Beginning in January 2019, the City started meeting with an advisory board of residents to get detailed input on walking and biking in Sedona.
Additionally, we will be holding workshops and community meetings during the nine months. Check back to this website to learn more about when and where those will occur.
