A request for a zone change on a visible State Route 89A property between Uptown and West Sedona will go before the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission on Thursday, Jan. 31.

The city of Sedona’s Planning and Zoning Commission met on Jan. 3, to discuss whether to allow a zoning change for the Real Estate Central property on Cook’s Hill. Sedona business owner Lisa Dahl hopes to open a restaurant at the site.Commissioners will also discuss a possible city purchase of the property from owner Michael Stevenson during the meeting for use as open space. The meeting is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. at Sedona City Hall. Commissioners are also scheduled to discuss the property’s proposed zone change from business residential to commercial.

Commissioners first talked about the property Jan. 3 — particularly whether to allow the zone change. While the Planning and Zoning Commission didn’t make a formal decision on a zone change during that meeting, it did ask for more information in order to make a more informed decision later.
