When creating its wireless communications plan, the city of Sedona knew it had its hands tied due to federal regulations regarding cellular providers.

But a state law — signed earlier this year by Gov. Doug Ducey — has tightened the knot on the city’s hands even more. House Bill 2365 has come up several times during recent Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission meetings.

Maybe the third time’s the charm.

On June 1, the Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission discussed making a recommendation to the City Council regarding the city’s wireless communications plan.

The results of the city’s second traffic survey came as little surprise to Assistant City Manager Karen Osburn.

The first one, which was completed late last year, garnered more than 2,000 online responses. The most recent one was open from June 21 to July 6 and saw 1,700 responses, with 1,400 completed fully.

It’s become one of the most discussed topics at City Hall — signs.

The Sedona City Council spent another two and a half hours discussing the matter on Wednesday, July 26. And again, the topic focused on one particular part of the revamped sign code: Those that are considered off-premises.

What’s your level of happiness in terms of living in Sedona?

The city would like to know. For the first time in a decade, the city of Sedona is initiating a random quality of life survey to residents. A similar survey was sent out in 2007, 2004 and 2002.

The rodeo is returning to Sedona.

Well, sort of.

The Sedona Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting a new event on Friday, Aug. 18, from 4 to 7 p.m at Posse Grounds Park — Sedona Family Foot Rodeo.

The public will have at least one more opportunity to hear discussion regarding the city’s proposed Wireless Master Plan before it moves onto the Sedona City Council.

On June 1, the Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission spent nearly three hours discussing the plan but since only four of the seven members were in attendance, they chose to continue the meeting — and a potential decision on it — at  a future date.

Streamlining and making everything more readerfriendly are key objectives as the city updates its 20-year-old Community Development Plan.

The Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission spent more than two hours discussing the matter on Tuesday, July 18, with several additional meetings planned.
