Future of Tourism Management in Sedona

On April 5th, the Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau’s Board informed the City of Sedona that they have decided to not renew their tourism contract with the City at the end of fiscal year (June 30, 2023). On April 12th, the City Council voted to establish a city-owned Destination Management Organization (DMO). Since that time, many “facts” and opinions have been stated on-line and in newspaper articles. We want to ensure that you get accurate information, so we have developed a summary of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). We have also reviewed the many newspaper articles (news and opinion pieces) and provided more information where necessary to provide balance or the necessary accuracy. Please take time to review these. If you have a question that is not addressed here, submit it to and we will add it to the list.


Traffic, Trails, and OHVs
Unsustainable traffic and tourism are choking the life out of our small town. The City and Chamber are planning more of the same. Learn more.
Short-Term Rentals
Short-Term Rentals like Airbnbs have devastated the affordable rental market in Sedona. Families are losing homes they have lived in for 30 years. Neighborhoods are turning into hotels and businesses cannot find employees. Learn more.
Affordable Housing
Sedona is in a housing crisis. Short-term rentals are replacing long-term rentals, and the cost of long-term rentals has tripled in price. Schools have closed, and those that remain are in threat of closing. Businesses can no longer find employees, and people live out of their cars to keep their jobs. Learn more.

Uptown Parking Garage
The City has completed a reassessment of the need for the parking garage and concluded that YES IT IS NEEDED! It will be reviewed at City Council on November 15th, 2 pm. BE THERE to express your opinion on their conclusion. We have developed a counter proposal. We will present it at Council also. Details of both proposals attached. Learn more.

Red Rock News/Sedona.Biz Corrections

The Red Rock News and Sedona.Biz are critical source for information. We are lucky to have a small town newspaper and the Sedona.Biz. But sometimes they (or their Guest Columnists) get it wrong or are unclear. When they are, we will provide additional information, so that inaccurate/unclear information does not result in angst or confusion for residents.
