For years, the city of Sedona has faced an ongoing issue between musicians playing at local venues and the residents who live nearby. But now, city officials are hoping they have found a solution.

The Sedona City Code states that the maximum permissible sound level is 60 decibels from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and 50 decibels from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. in residential areas. For all C1, C2 and C3 commercial districts, the maximum is 65 decibels.On Tuesday, June 18, staff from the police department, city attorney’s office and city manager’s office met to discuss the issue.

The result is that the city wants to hold a meeting in the next two or three weeks and bring together business and property owners, musicians and those residents who live near these establishments to come up with a plan.

For the full story, see the Friday, June 21, edition of the Sedona Red Rock News.

    In at town that wants to be know as an artists community is is surprising that "Arrest the Musicians" was an option for solving the noise problem in the local newspapers poll. And more surprising how many people actually chose that option. Any fun is pretty much illegal in Sedona!
