Rotary Club’s Oktoberfest draws 900 to new venue

Motivational speaker Tony Robbins once said, "By changing nothing, nothing changes."This year, the Rotary Club of Sedona Red Rocks changed the venue for its third annual Oktoberfest from Los Abrigados...

Sedona Planning and Zoning Com-missioners continued to discuss a proposed zone change for a high-profile property between Uptown and West Sedona.

The city of Sedona’s Planning and Zoning commissioners first discussed the Cook's Hill property Jan. 3 — particularly whether to allow a zone change for a new restaurant. While the Planning and Zoning Commission didn’t make a formal decision, they did ask for more information in order to make a more informed decision later.

The project was shifted to a Thursday, Jan. 31, special work session for further discussion following a conceptual hearing earlier in January. As part of his zone change request to restaurant zoning, property owner Michael Stevenson agreed to restrict a number of the uses for his property that would typically be allowed under C1 zoning, including the use of the property as a cocktail lounge.

Stevenson attended the Jan. 31 meeting, along with Sedona restaurant owner Lisa Dahl, who hopes to open a new restaurant at the visible State Route 89A location. The site is surrounded by Coconino National Forest along State Route 89A, and is located near the Rolling Hills subdivision.

    I think as a local resident, and a previous visiting tourist from out of state for many years that any business in this space would be a an improvement. However, I feel another restaurant and bar would just be another restaurant and bar. How about a business that focuses on something that our community and tourist especially folks with children really need. Like a bowling alley with a arcade, It could also serve food and beverages. The other idea I had was a mini golf course maybe as a part of the same venue. Take a look at Congo River golf online there are many in Orlando. I think we need to focus on family fun and entertainment in our community. I've got many other ideas, and research if anyone is interested.
