Success!!!! Council Approves Sedona Bike Park!!

The Sedona City Council approved moving forward with the proposal of a bike park at the Posse Grounds. The site covering 13 acres and referred to as site 1 was voted 5 to 1 with the cycling community on the hook for a cost no more than 30,000 to design of the park after which the city will pay for construction of the park which amounts to 110,000 for construction plus 10,000 a year for maintenance. The one no vote was only due to Vice Mayor Mark DiNunzio's want to see the City give stronger support and commitment in the proposed motion. We are excited to start pushing the fundraising for the park now possessing a green light on making the Sedona Bike Park a reality. Prior to the green light we already had commitments to donate $5000. We hope to see the fundraising move along successfully as we saw the community support and attendance at the city council meeting. So time to start leaning on people to make this thing a reality. On the right hand side of the website is a bike park donation button.

We got more Signs!!!!

A big appreciation goes out to board member Kevin Dix and member Dr. Bob Richards for pursuing better bike signage around the valley in areas managed by the county & ADOT. Two new signs were installed by ADOT on HWY179 south of the VOC near the junction of Beaverhead Flat Rd. The signs are a bit more visible due to a tad more green in them and better reflectivity. The pic is of the southbound lane sign. The county will be installing more of these around the valley in the coming months.

We Need Your Presence!!! For the Sedona Bike Park!!!! Today!!!!

Today is here October 8th, the Sedona City Council will discuss and take action on a proposed bike skills park at Posse Grounds Park. In June, the Parks and Recreation Manager and I(Doug Copp) presented the bike park concept. The mayor and council raised questions and concerns which required us to collect additional data. Today we will present our results. User attendance at this meeting will demonstrate the level of community interest in the bike park. The meeting will be held in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 102 Roadrunner Drive, in West Sedona. The meeting starts at 4:30pm and they will probably get to the bike park discussion an hour or so into the meeting.
