As the city of Sedona’s yearlong transportation study comes to an end, the next step will be to decide how to best use the information in it, and when.

Sedona City Council members scratched that surface on Aug. 9, when discussing the city’s second public online traffic survey. They did this while going over the pros and cons of four of the 13 potential projects designed to reduce traffic.

It’s been eight years since the cost to license a dog in Sedona was last raised.

That will soon change.

The increase was one of several items discussed and approved regarding the Humane Society of Sedona during the Tuesday, Aug. 8, Sedona City Council meeting.

It’s the last thing they expected to come home to.

On the evening of Wednesday, Aug. 2, Danna and Geoff Messer went for a walk but when they returned home they quickly noticed a strong smell. The bathtub and toilet in their guest bathroom was full of raw sewage spilling onto the floor.

When creating its wireless communications plan, the city of Sedona knew it had its hands tied due to federal regulations regarding cellular providers.

But a state law — signed earlier this year by Gov. Doug Ducey — has tightened the knot on the city’s hands even more. House Bill 2365 has come up several times during recent Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission meetings.

Maybe the third time’s the charm.

On June 1, the Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission discussed making a recommendation to the City Council regarding the city’s wireless communications plan.

The results of the city’s second traffic survey came as little surprise to Assistant City Manager Karen Osburn.

The first one, which was completed late last year, garnered more than 2,000 online responses. The most recent one was open from June 21 to July 6 and saw 1,700 responses, with 1,400 completed fully.

It’s become one of the most discussed topics at City Hall — signs.

The Sedona City Council spent another two and a half hours discussing the matter on Wednesday, July 26. And again, the topic focused on one particular part of the revamped sign code: Those that are considered off-premises.

What’s your level of happiness in terms of living in Sedona?

The city would like to know. For the first time in a decade, the city of Sedona is initiating a random quality of life survey to residents. A similar survey was sent out in 2007, 2004 and 2002.
