Sedona AZ (September 18, 2018) – The public is invited to attend two Sedona City Council Work Sessions in the Sedona City Council Chambers on Wednesday, Sept. 26 at 3 p.m and Thursday, September 27 at 8 a.m. for discussion regarding the update of the city’s Land Development Code (LDC). The 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. Over an 18-month period, staff worked closely with the Planning and Zoning Commission and the City’s consulting team to provide a draft document that will accomplish the goals established at the outset of the project to:
Be user-friendly and easy to understand.
Provide clear and specific direction for development and re-development.
Implement the Sedona Community Plan.
Address the goals in adopted Community Focus Area (CFA) Plans.
Reflect best practices.
On June 19, the Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously recommended City Council approval of the draft LDC.
“After many months of work, we are excited to see the draft LDC now moving forward for discussion and consideration by the City Council,” says Senior Planner Mike Raber.
On July 25, the draft LDC was introduced to the City Council. In the Sept. 26 and 27 work sessions, the Council will continue their discussion of the LDC. The Council will ultimately consider adoption of the updated LDC.

The draft LDC update and the accompanying draft zoning map is available for public review on the LDC webpage.
