Wayfinding signs and kiosks have been installed in Uptown, with more placement to occur after completion of the roadway improvements project. 

The entire wayfinding package includes vehicular, point-of-interest, and trailhead signage; signs that are located in ADOT right of way must meet that agency's design requirements. Signage improves awareness of and access to underutilized off-street public parking in the Uptown area and helps travelers find destinations more quickly, contributing to improved traffic flow.

  • Signage in Uptown is coordinated with marketing and education materials distributed to visitors at hotels, the Visitor Center and online. 
  • Citywide entryway sign locations have been identified. 
  • Visitor information kiosks are planned.

Wayfinding signage will eventually extend through West Sedona, helping travelers find destinations more quickly.

Expanded parking and one-way streets

One-way streets.  The primary purpose behind considering one-way streets for Van Deren, Wilson and Smith in Uptown is to improve safety and facilitate safe parking on these very narrow streets. Outreach with residents will occur before any further potential action is taken.

Parking facility study.  More and better access to parking in Uptown creates better passage for residents on neighborhood streets by mitigating illegal parking. The focus is on existing lots and adjacent areas as well as consideration of possible new parking areas or future construction of a parking garage. Some off-street parking lots could be designated solely for tour bus parking and employee parking.
