Land Development Code Update Wins State Award
The Land Development Code update of 2018 has been recognized with an award from the Arizona Chapter of the American Planning Association. The code won in the “Ordinance/Regulation” category. The 2018 update project was the first comprehensive overhaul of the code since the original 1994 adoption. City staff received assistance from Clarion Associates, a land use firm based in Denver, Co. See the News Release for details.
New Building Codes
On September 24, 2019, City Council approved the adoption of new building codes and amendments consisting of the 2018 versions of the International Code Council’s building codes (the I-Codes) and the 2017 National Electrical Code (NEC). The adoption of these codes provides our Building Safety Department the tools to review and inspect new construction materials, products and processes and to address the latest safety, environmental and energy concerns and measurements. It also places Sedona in line with the surrounding communities and counties, who have already adopted, or are in the process of adopting, the 2018 I-Codes and the 2017 NEC.
Please note that the new codes will go into effect October 25. 2019. All permits submitted on or after this date must comply with the new codes. See below for the full list of the newly adopted codes, or review the full set of amendments.

GO Sedona! Bicycle/Pedestrian Planning Underway
This community planning process will look at how to make Sedona more walkable and bikeable. Everyone's participation is encouraged, and we would like to know: 1) where are you currently walking and biking, and 2) where do you wish you could walk or bike and why. This process will result in a master plan for the city that addresses sidewalks, pathways, trails, and trail access. See the GO Sedona! webpage to learn more, submit comments, and sign up to be notified of future workshops and surveys.
