Have Your Voice be Heard
Launched in December of 2013, the Citizen Engagement Program aims to capture a wide audience of Sedona’s citizens, making it easier for you to get involved. The program:
increases the Sedona city government's access to its citizens' ideas and expertise
makes information about citizen engagement more transparent, accessible and interactive for all citizens
engages capable, motivated citizens in projects they care about that will improve their community
improves the collaborative processes among city staff, City Council and concerned citizens
Work groups are groups of volunteers that give input on a variety of topics. The topics may focus on the long range, such as "What should we do with this acreage?," to more immediate topics such as "How should the new cell phone policy be enforced so that it's fair to both locals and tourists?"
Learn more about work groups and see lists of upcoming, current and past work groups, including details on members and the group's progress.
Community Plan Advisory Groups
Another way to volunteer is through the CPAGs. Every year a CPAG is formed to examine the Action Items listed in the Community Plan and recommend to city council which items should be prioritized for the following year. This ensures the Community Plan is being executed. Learn more about the CPAGs and how to be involved.
We've launched the Volunteer Registry to create a volunteer bank from which to choose when creating work groups and committees for feedback and projects. Potential work group participants are informed of the topic, and meeting times, locations and frequency. Sign up now for the Citizen Engagement Program by filling out this volunteer questionnaire.
Don't Have Time to Volunteer?
Online surveys and feedback forms provide an opportunity to weigh-in on various issues and ask questions. Learn more about engaging online.
Do you have a suggestion you would like the city to consider? Use the Comment Box. Suggestions are welcome and shared with the appropriate staff person or city council members. Learn more about the citizen suggestion process.
In 2017 the city surveyed residents about quality of life in Sedona. Get the results here.
