CFA 12 in the Community Plan, also known as the Shelby/Sunset or AAA Industrial Park CFA

Summary: CFA plans are considered addendums to the Community Plan and address issues specific to a smaller area, whereas the Community Plan provides the big picture vision of the future of Sedona. CFA plans are intended to guide future development and typically address land use, circulation, environment, and community issues. The plans are developed with community input from property owners, businesses, neighbors, and other stakeholders. The draft plan undergoes a public review process and goes into effect once approved by City Council.
