Sedona AZ (July 17, 2019) – The city of Sedona has launched the online tool Wikimapping to collect ideas for walking and biking improvements. The tool features a map of Sedona in which you can draw routes you’d like to have built or would like improved; mark favorites, suggest “great” locations; and mark locations you feel are problematic. Once you mark your routes, you can add comments, or agree or disagree with others’ input. The feedback provided on the wikimap will be used to inform a walking and biking planning effort currently underway, which will ultimately result in a master plan to outline and prioritize future improvements.
Bicycle and pedestrian improvements are one of the city’s Transportation Master Plan strategies. This particular bike/walk planning process – labeled Get Outside (GO) Sedona — will create a comprehensive, detailed road map informed by contributions from Sedona’s walking and biking enthusiasts.
This effort has a multifaceted public input approach that includes:
- A GO Sedona citizen work group that will serve as an advisory board for development of the walking and biking master plan.
- The online Wikimapping tool to get broad-based input from residents.
- Focus group meetings with community groups.
- Public meeting workshops with residents.
“We hope residents will use this tool to share their wish lists of improvements to make walking and biking in our city a better, safer experience. Through the Community Plan and the National Citizen Survey we heard from the community that improved walking and biking is a top priority. This master plan will outline where the improvements should be made and which projects should be completed first,” says Senior Planner Cynthia Lovely.
The map is open for input until Aug. 10 by visiting www.sedonaaz.gov/wikimapping.
