Sedona AZ (March 14, 2018) – The public is invited to attend a Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission work session on March 20 at 3:30 p.m. in the Sedona City Council Chambers to continue discussion on 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. Updating the LDC is a major undertaking, and the project is being phased into four parts. The first two involved proposed language regarding zoning districts and uses, and development and design standards; these parts were discussed by the Planning and Zoning Commission in 2017.
At the March 20 meeting, the commission will review proposed language as part of the third phase of the LDC update, which includes administration and procedures. The commission will also continue discussion from previous meetings about landscaping, density and development standards.
“I am excited to see the continued progress of the code update,” says Senior Planner Mike Raber. “This part of the draft code will help streamline the city’s review processes and is the last part of the update before moving on to the unified draft document. That next step, later this spring, will see the draft code put together as one document for review and consideration.”
The LDC helps effect the community’s vision of Sedona as articulated in the Community Plan—for example, what we want the community to look like and be like. The LDC makes the vision real.
