It’s been nearly 20 years since Sedona has had a citywide traffic study conducted. The Planning and Zoning Commission is hoping that can soon change.The city of Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission hosted a meeting on Tuesday, July 1, to discuss possible actions regarding vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and circulation throughout the city. The goal was to improve pedestrian crosswalks and find better ways of keeping traffic moving.

During a meeting Tuesday, July 1,  the commissioners discussed ways to improve vehicular and pedestrian traffic in and around Sedona. One way of doing so would be to have an updated traffic study done, the first since 1996. Even though they said a thorough study could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, one needs to be done since traffic was listed as one of the biggest concerns of residents in the recently-completed Community Plan.

Chairman Marty Losoff requested the item be agendized because he said traffic issues need to be addressed. He said a traffic study would give the city an idea of what could be done and at what cost. He said often, the phrase “We can’t afford it” is used before an alternative is even looked into.

“This isn’t something that’s going to be done tomorrow, next week, next month or next year — it’s a problem that will continue and is something that needs to be looked at,” he said. “We should have someone analyze our situation and say if we do have alternative routes and if not, here’s why.”
