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

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 Community Plan Advisory Group (CPAG). A CPAG is formed to examine the Action Items listed in the Community Plan and recommend to City Council which items should be prioritized to ensure the Community Plan is executed. Learn more about the CPAGs and how to be involved.

Volunteer registry 

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.

Citizen suggestions

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.
