Project Name: Sunset Live/Work Community Focus Area (CFA) Plan,
CFA 12 in the Community Plan, also known as the Shelby/Sunset or AAA Industrial Park CFACFA AAA map

Summary: CFA plans are considered addendums to the Community Plan and address issues specific to a smaller area, whereas the Community Plan provides the big picture vision of the future of Sedona. CFA plans are intended to guide future development and typically address land use, circulation, environment, and community issues. The plans are developed with community input from property owners, businesses, neighbors, and other stakeholders. The draft plan undergoes a public review process and goes into effect once approved by City Council.

Location: This CFA is located at the south end of Shelby Drive and Sunset Drive. It includes the "AAA Industrial Park" and Sunset Park. 

Project Status: The Planning and Zoning Commission forwarded a draft plan to City Council on May 15, 2018. City Council held one work session on July 11, 2018 to discuss the draft plan. A revised draft plan is expected to go back to Council following the completion of the Land Development Code Update - next work session with Council is February 13, 2019.
