Sedona AZ (December 9, 2011) – The City of Sedona will be holding a series of public meetings to provide citizens the opportunity to comment on the proposed Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The CIP is a process by which the City designs a multi-year plan for major capital expenditure. It represents the City’s plan for physical development, and identifies the planned funding sources for design and construction. The plan is reviewed each year to reflect changing priorities and provides an ongoing framework for identifying capital requirements, scheduling projects over a period of years, coordinating related projects, and identifying future fiscal impacts.
The CIP is a dynamic process, with anticipated projects being changed, added, and deleted, from the plan as the five-year timeline moves forward. In particular, included in the CIP are projects in the areas of drainage, public safety, parks and recreation, wastewater, information technology, affordable housing, streets, sidewalks and transportation.
“We plan to have these public comment opportunities at regularly scheduled City Commission meetings to give the community a variety of days and times to provide input, and at the same time, involve our seven standing Commissions in the CIP process”, indicated John O’Brien, Sedona’s Community Development Director. After the Commissions complete their review, the City Council is expected to review and approve the CIP in April of 2012. The following public meetings have been scheduled at Sedona City Hall in the Vultee Conference Room:
- January 9, 2012 – 4:00 p.m.- Historic Preservation Commission
- January 17, 2012 – 5:30 p.m. – Planning and Zoning Commission
- January 18, 2012 – 10:00 a.m. – Budget Oversight Commission
- January 23, 2012 – 3:00 p.m. (tentative) – Arts and Culture Commission
