“We were seriously impacted by these capital projects and the economy falling off a cliff. It was a very difficult time,” Adams said. “I reviewed the four years because it’s been one of the most difficult times in Sedona’s history, in my opinion. I wanted to give the audience an overview of what’s been accomplished in spite of the difficult economy and all of the other challenges we faced.”
