For a document that hadn’t been updated in nearly a quarter century, it’s expected that there may be a few tweaks — or dozens, as the case may be — in order to get to the point where everyone is satisfied.
That was the task of city staff and the Sedona City Council on Tuesday, Oct. 8, as they did a little housekeeping pertaining to the Land Development Code, which was adopted 11 months ago following a two-year process. The LDC update was the first comprehensive overhaul of the document since 1994 and represented a significant improvement over the previous one.
“We ended up with a much-improved document over the previous code and much more user friendly,” Senior Planner Mike Raber said. “But as thorough as our review process is, there are always going to be things that we could have worded differently, things that we missed, or things that we didn’t anticipate without actually working with the code.”
