Keep Sedona Beautiful
Sedona AZ (February 14, 2020) – When Keep Sedona Beautiful was recently notified by Yavapai County Development Services that an LLC had resubmitted a request for rezoning to allow them to build an enormous development off of State Route 89A north of Cornville, evaluated their Amended Letter of Intent and their Amended Site Plan.
We quickly saw that the developer (SCR Manager, LLC) intends to build a 282 acre master-planned community which will include approximately 1500 Single Family Residential lots of which up to 200 lots may be used for Recreational Vehicle visitors, 400 Rental Units, and a 200 Unit Assisted Living facility. This huge community would be built on either side of Spring Creek, a key riparian habitat that’s home to a number of endangered and threatened species.
KSB submitted a comment letter to Yavapai County Development Services that expresses our concerns about the proposal, concluding with the following statements:
After considering the information that the applicant has provided describing their proposal to develop Spring Creek Ranch, and after considering the likely impact of the development on the land and on existing communities, Keep Sedona Beautiful strongly opposes this rezoning request. Spring Creek Ranch is the wrong development in the wrong location.
