SEDONA, Ariz. — The Sedona City Council is set to vote on whether to seek
an official designation recognizing its dark skies.
The council will take up the matter during a meeting Tuesday.
If a designation is sought and approved by the International Dark Sky
Association, the city would become just the fifth community in the world to earn
the honor. Flagstaff was the first.
Sedona Mayor Rob Adams told the Arizona Daily Sun
that the city already has a strong commitment to sustainability and the
environment and a dark sky designation would give it more guidelines to move
Adams said a designation would also be good for business.
The chamber of commerce, school district and board of supervisors have all
moved to support the application.
