Current Sedona Tourism Economy

We hear all the time lately that the local economy is failing, conditions are dire, and that we are heading into a recession.  So it is important to look back and see how the economy has performed over the past few years.  It is easy to say that the sky is falling, but we need to take a look at the local economic performance over the longer term and short term to see how we are actually doing.

Look at the data for yourself in our exclusive white paper Sedona Arizona – So how is the local economy doing?


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 put the $18 million parking garage on hold pending an updated parking study!! Excellent!
A document developed by Mark TenBroek provides a great summary of the issue. It is attached for your reference. Learn more.

Red Rock News Corrections

The Red Rock News is a critical source for information. We are lucky to have a small town newspaper. But sometimes they get it wrong. When they do, we will provide a correction, so that inaccurate information does not result in angst or confusion for residents.

More coming soon…
