Planning and Zoning Commission Meetings: The following dates link to meeting materials. Meeting materials typically include a staff report, application materials, and public comments. 

The May 7, 2019 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting has been canceled.  The agenda item for this meeting included a City-initiated request for a minor amendment to the Sedona Community Plan that would affect the criteria for  major amendments to the Sedona Community Plan. Since this is a City-initiated request, staff is concerned that this item is being perceived as related to an application for a major amendment to the Community Plan (Serenade Apartments) that is currently under review. This City-initiated request will therefore not be proposed to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council while the Serenade project is under consideration.
