… with an oldie and with new body parts. I am told I am doing very well, but I’m going to take a few more days off for healing. I took this shot in 2009, and it captures the essence of one of my favorite creatures. Hope you enjoy it too.

The City Council will review and consider the draft Wireless Communications Master Plan and the amendments pertaining to the wireless facilities zoning ordinance Wednesday, December 13, 2017, at 3:00 p.m. The City alleges the purpose of its Wireless Master Plan is to “protect the unique natural beauty and small-town character of Sedona…promote the health, safety and general welfare of the public…minimize the impacts of wireless communications facilities …,” etc.

According to last November 15th’s Red Rock News,  currently there are 22 towers in or near the boundaries of the city. CityScape, the city’s consultant, states that it has found an additional 17 to 25 towers of varying sizes will be needed within the city limits (16 inside City currently). They claim Sedona’s population is increasing; however, it decreased after the housing bubble burst and is 1,000 less today than the 11,436 population of 2009. The data base of “FCC Registered Antenna Towers in Sedona, AZ” contains 44. “Note: Not all towers much be registered.” See www.city-data.com/towers/cell-Sedona-Arizona.html Read More→
