Sedona Buys A Nearly 41-Acre Parcel Of Land For A Record $20-Million

The City of Sedona has purchased a nearly 41-acre parcel of land for a record $20-million. The sale was finalized on December 8th. The land is the last and largest parcel of undeveloped land in and around the city. The property can be accessed from Highway 89A and Cultural Park Place at 105 Cultural Park Place, and is home to the Georgia Frontiere Performing Arts Pavilion, which was a 55-hundred seat outdoor amphitheater that closed in 2003. Ed Pennington with Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty says “over the past three years, we have had several offers on this property from developers.” He adds, “although we don’t know the specific plan the city has for this land, we are thrilled the City of Sedona has purchased this incredible property.” The city says the site will need to go through an extensive master planning process that will include a lot of public outreach and community feedback. The city says it will look at the possibility of workforce housing on a small portion of the property. They also say they don’t intend to reopen the amphitheater, but trails, parking and the picnic areas will all remain open.
