Safe Place to Park - Comments to Sedona City Council

13 Mar 2024 3:07 PM | Tracy Randall (Administrator)

The City has agreed and will work with the Forest Service to utilize Forest Service style fencing to block access to the Forest, protecting Bottom Out, Outer Limits and the surrounding Forest from social paths developing from the Safe Place to Park to these nearby trails.

Additionally, due to the anticipated 3,000 gallons of potential graywater generated daily from showering, the City is working with the ADEQ to ensure that water does not impact the surrounding washes, specifically Bottom Out.

Finally, we raised concerns about trash during the meeting, as the Cultural Park TH is already one of the dirtier trail heads. The City indicated that they would ensure no environmental impact would occur due to this temporary usage of the property.

We encourage VVCC members to reach out to the Sedona City Council to express your support for the VVCC's position: support for the Forest Service style fencing protecting the nearby trails, concerns about the potential impact to Bottom Out and general concerns about trash at the Girdner TH and surrounding trails, link here.

We would also like to thank VVCC member and Sedona City Councilor Pete Furman for championing and supporting these efforts with the VVCC.

Letter to the City Council here.

The VVCC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded in 2003 (incorporated in March 2004) to promote road and mountain bike advocacy in, and around, the Verde Valley of Northern Arizona.
