Continue to investigate new approaches to provide range of workforce housing for Sedona employees.
Sedona is working to expand workforce housing options for people who work in the city.
This tactic will ensure tourism industry professionals are participating in expanding housing alternatives within the city.
Given the nature of workforce housing needs, it will be important to coordinate regionally. Metrics should be considered at city and regional levels.
