The Sedona Community Forum at Yavapai College has held two sessions to discuss the future of the Sedona Cultural Park, which the Sedona City Council purchased in November for around $24 million.
The first, on Jan. 25, featured Mayor Scott Jablow. The second, which took place on Wednesday, April 5, presented the park’s architects, Dan Jensvold and Stephen Thompson, who briefed participants on the park’s history and then took them on a tour of the amphitheater. The city has not yet held a meeting.
“I’m glad it’s becoming something for the community to talk about,” Osher Lifelong Learning Institute facilitator Paul Friedman said. “It’s a creative opportunity for the community.”
