The concept didn’t go over well with the Sedona City Council and nearby residents. Now it’s Yavapai County’s turn to hear about a proposed development two miles west of Sedona.
The project, Rojo Grande Sedona, proposes to rezone its current zoning of residential single-family to Planned Area Development. As proposed, this would allow a 55-and-older development with 600 manufactured home sites and 50 recreational vehicle sites.
The developer, Equity LifeStyle Properties, currently owns and manages the adjacent Sedona Shadows. Residents would own the manufactured home but would lease the land on which it sat for around $1,000 a month.The proposed development is located on the site of El Rojo Grande Ranch, which is approximately two-and-a-half miles west of Sedona’s jurisdictional boundary. The proposed project will go before the Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Commission on Thursday, Dec. 20. That meeting is set to begin at 9 a.m. and will be held at the Yavapai County Complex at 10 S. Sixth St., in Cottonwood. The public is welcomed to attend. The project is set to go before the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday, Jan. 16.
