Sedona AZ (May 30, 2018) – The city of Sedona will host a community open house on Tuesday, June 5, at 1 p.m. at the Sedona Public Library, 3250 White Bear Rd., to present the draft update of the city’s Land Development Code (LDC). The public is also invited to attend a Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission work session on June 5 at 3:30 p.m. in the Sedona City Council Chambers to discuss the update of the LDC. Council chambers are located in the City Hall complex at 102 Roadrunner Dr.
The LDC establishes standards for all new development and redevelopment and is one of the city’s most important tools for protecting and enhancing the unique character of Sedona.
In 2016 the city initiated a comprehensive rewrite of several major sections of the code to provide clear and specific direction for development and redevelopment. Updating the LDC is a major undertaking requiring the project to be phased into four parts. The first three parts involved proposed language regarding zoning districts and uses, development and design standards and administration and procedures.
At the June 5 meeting, the Planning and Zoning Commission will review and discuss the fourth part of the LDC update, the actual unified draft document.
“We are excited to see the draft code now put together as one unified document,” says Senior Planner Mike Raber. “This draft, updated LDC is a big improvement over the current code and will be much easier to use.”
The LDC helps carry out the community’s vision of Sedona as provided in the Community Plan; for example, what do we want the community to look like and be like? The LDC makes the vision real.
Visit the city’s LDC webpage at SedonaLDCupdate.com to learn about the LDC and the update process. The draft update will be available for public review beginning May 30 on the LDC webpage. For questions and comments contact Senior Planner Mike Raber at 928-204-7106 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
