The rodeo is returning to Sedona.

Well, sort of.

The Sedona Parks and Recreation Department will be hosting a new event on Friday, Aug. 18, from 4 to 7 p.m at Posse Grounds Park — Sedona Family Foot Rodeo.

The public will have at least one more opportunity to hear discussion regarding the city’s proposed Wireless Master Plan before it moves onto the Sedona City Council.

On June 1, the Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission spent nearly three hours discussing the plan but since only four of the seven members were in attendance, they chose to continue the meeting — and a potential decision on it — at  a future date.

Streamlining and making everything more readerfriendly are key objectives as the city updates its 20-year-old Community Development Plan.

The Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission spent more than two hours discussing the matter on Tuesday, July 18, with several additional meetings planned.

Donations and grants are often the lifeblood of many local nonprofits and groups.

And as a way to lend a helping hand, the city of Sedona offers an annual small grant program, which many groups use.

After a brief hiatus, the Sedona Mayor’s Arts Awards returned this year and by all accounts was a big success.

The June 29 event at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre drew more than 100 people as they honored local artists for the work they’ve done and the contributions they’ve made over the years.

Every member of the Sedona City Council agreed that the Sedona Public Library is an important piece of the city’s pie.

But what the piece of pie is worth was up for debate on Tuesday, July 11.

Who says you can’t talk about Christmas in June?

The Sedona City Council did just that on June 27 as Parks and Recreation Manager Rachel Murdoch and Sedona Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Jennifer Wesselhoff gave preliminary details of what’s planned for this holiday season.

The Sedona Land Development Code is more than 600 pages in length — not exactly light reading for staff or the public. But by this time next year, that will all have changed.

The public is invited to attend a Sedona Planning and Zoning Commission work session to be held Tuesday, July 18, at 3:30 p.m. to hear about the next step in the update of the city’s LDC. The session will be held in the council chambers at City Hall.
