Sedona Planning and Zoning Com-missioners continued to discuss a proposed zone change for a high-profile property between Uptown and West Sedona.

The city of Sedona’s Planning and Zoning commissioners first discussed the Cook's Hill property Jan. 3 — particularly whether to allow a zone change for a new restaurant. While the Planning and Zoning Commission didn’t make a formal decision, they did ask for more information in order to make a more informed decision later.

The project was shifted to a Thursday, Jan. 31, special work session for further discussion following a conceptual hearing earlier in January. As part of his zone change request to restaurant zoning, property owner Michael Stevenson agreed to restrict a number of the uses for his property that would typically be allowed under C1 zoning, including the use of the property as a cocktail lounge.

Stevenson attended the Jan. 31 meeting, along with Sedona restaurant owner Lisa Dahl, who hopes to open a new restaurant at the visible State Route 89A location. The site is surrounded by Coconino National Forest along State Route 89A, and is located near the Rolling Hills subdivision.

    I think as a local resident, and a previous visiting tourist from out of state for many years that any business in this space would be a an improvement. However, I feel another restaurant and bar would just be another restaurant and bar. How about a business that focuses on something that our community and tourist especially folks with children really need. Like a bowling alley with a arcade, It could also serve food and beverages. The other idea I had was a mini golf course maybe as a part of the same venue. Take a look at Congo River golf online there are many in Orlando. I think we need to focus on family fun and entertainment in our community. I've got many other ideas, and research if anyone is interested.
