City of Sedona Employee Housing Survey
The City of Sedona has retained Elliott D. Pollack & Company of Scottsdale to prepare a Housing Needs Assessment and Action Plan that will address affordable housing in the City. As part of the Assessment, an online survey will be conducted of persons who work within the City limits to determine the need for affordable housing and where it might be found today in the Verde Valley. In conjunction with the Sedona Chamber of Commerce and businesses in the community, we are requesting your participation in the survey to better understand the availability of affordable housing. All responses will be kept strictly confidential and individual responses will not be revealed to any employer or business.
