Sedona AZ (May 20, 2020) – The city of Sedona is working with the community to create Sedona’s first Climate Action Plan and needs your feedback.
In Sedona, climate change is impacting temperatures, water availability and wildfire risk. These changes threaten Sedona’s natural resources, economy, infrastructure and quality of life.
The Climate Action Plan will be a road map that identifies actions that the community will take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to climate change. Sedona’s plan will help build resilience to risks like flooding, wildfires and extreme heat.
In light of COVID-19, the city will be conducting the planning process virtually and asks that community members participate by joining an upcoming virtual open house and/or filling out an online community survey. Input from the open houses and survey will help inform the ultimate vision, goals and actions of the Plan.
The public is encouraged to attend a virtual open house on one of the following dates:
- Monday, June 8, 2020 from 4:30 – 5:45 p.m.
- Tuesday, June 9, 2020 from 10 – 11:15 a.m.
- Thursday, June 11, 2020 from 5:30 – 6:45 p.m.
A final draft of the Plan is estimated to be completed in late fall 2020 and will be presented to City Council for approval soon-after.
The online survey will be open until June 18, 2020. To take it, sign up for a virtual open house or find more information on the Climate Action Plan, visit www.sedonaaz.gov/climate.
