Work continues in a number of areas. These include:
- A master planning process to create and/or link shared-use paths throughout the city.
- New shared-use paths for Soldiers Pass Road, Schnebly Hill Road, Dry Creek Road and Thunder Mountain/Sanborn Road.
- Discussions about a shared-use path with residents of the Chapel area, who have requested safety and parking improvements along Chapel Road.
Design will soon begin on the Posse Ground and Soldiers Pass Road shared-use path. This walking/biking path will connect with a new parking area at the north end of the Posse Ground park property, and would run aside Soldiers Pass Road, ending at Rim Shadows Drive. Once the project is finished parking restrictions would be implemented within the public right-of-way north of Carruth Drive.
GO Sedona. A community planning process is underway with a goal to make Sedona more walkable and bikeable. The result of the process will be a Master Plan that will serve as a guiding document to outline the steps necessary to achieve this.
High priority areas for new shared-use paths include Schnebly Hill Road from the roundabout west to Bear Wallow Lane, and Southwest Drive from City Hall along to Rodeo Road, and extending from Sunset Park to State Route 89A. Under consideration are:
- A multi-use path from Uptown to West Sedona: the Sedona Trails and Pathways System would be used by walkers and bike-riders.
- Wide paved shoulders on Dry Creek Road to support safe bike riding.
- Bike boulevard running parallel and to the north and south of SR 89A using existing streets with some new connecting pathways.
- Sidewalk connections to link neighborhoods and provide better resident access to parks and services, and opportunities for more outdoor activities.
