A huge thank you to all VVCC members and supporters who contacted Sedona City Councilors concerning the lack of a comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian plan as part of Sedona In Motion's (SIM) Transportation Plan.
Several VVCC Members and Directors were present at Tuesday's meeting of the Sedona City Council where various parts of the SIM was on the agenda. It took over two hours for SIM 11 - Bicycling and Pedestrian Plan - agenda item was addressed and the VVCC was ready. VVCC DirectorDoug Copp, Treasurer Kevin Adams (speaking on behalf of the Sedona Red Rock Trail Fund) and President Marty Glinsky spoke in favor of a comprehensive plan since SIM-11 was very limited. VVCC members Mike Raney and Scott Keller also spoke in favor of a comprehensive plan as did several residents.
Providing moral support in the audience were VVCC members Janet Levy, Randy First, Lauren Browne and Evan Puglia as well as VVCC Vice President, Dan Blaettler and Directors Pam Milavec and Don Mathieu. If we missed anyone who was there, please let us know.
As a result of these efforts, the Council directed City staff to develop such a plan. Democracy at work!
