OHV use in Sedona and the Verde Valley has increased exponentially over the past decade, bringing with it a host of challenges: disruption of neighborhoods, damage to National Forest land, frequent accidents and clouds of dust endangering residents and killing vegetation.
While most OHV users drive responsibly, a portion of those who rent OHVs and who bring their own vehicles to the area are causing a host of problems that need to be resolved.
Keep Sedona Beautiful will moderate a panel discussion that will first allow panelists to describe the current situation and then open the discussion up for questions from attendees. Panelists will include:
- Amy Tinderholt, Red Rock District Ranger
- Candace Carr Strauss, Sedona Chamber of Commerce CEO
- DeAnna Bindley, Resident
- Donna Michaels, Yavapai County Supervisor
- Joanne Keene, Sedona Deputy City Manager
- Rob Adams, Resident
Given the most recent guidance from the CDC and the plummeting COVID case numbers, we will not be requiring that attendees wear masks throughout the presentation. However, for this event, attendees must provide proof of vaccination.
