  1. Response to Sedona Being Scammed says:

    Save Sedona Now Press Release Time to Speak UP! http://www.savesedonanow.com savesedonanow@gmail.com

    Barbara Litrell States Referendum should be Null and Void. Promotes Legal Action against those who signed the petition! When will Politicians/ Elected Officials in the US come clean with their Constituents? Well, perhaps never and not in Sedona for sure. We have been misinformed, disinformed and may I say right out lied to. What a shock it was to read the following Press Release from Councilor Litrell “Hey Sedona, we’ve been had. In my opinion, that referendum should be declared null and void”

    Wow our city council member is still trying to take away your right to vote on Hwy 89-A! And in her full Press Release she is also talking about anyone signing petition committing a misdemeanor! Further Misinformation, Disinformation and Lies from our Elected City Council:

    § Repeatedly telling public that the Dark Sky Compliant lights ADOT proposes for Hwy 89a are not the same as the lights on 179 when they in fact know that they are identical to the Monterey lights at the roundabouts on 179 except 5′ taller and 25% less wattage. They know for a fact that the very entity that they are seeking International Dark Sky designation from has confirmed they are dark sky compliant lights!

    § Repeatedly stating that ADOT will force a take back of Hwy 89-A without any financial compensation. The Council knows the statute well and they know they are out right lying to the residents of Sedona, ADOT cannot force Sedona to take ownership of Hwy 89a!

    § Telling the business community that the lights will take a year to install when in fact ADOT told council it will be a 6 month project.

    § Insinuating to public that we don’t have to do continuous raised medians with pedestrian barriers in order to address nighttime safety when in fact two engineering studies – both ADOT and Civtech – have told the City they would be necessary without roadway lighting.

    § Ignoring the real will of the people by paying greater attention to survey/polls of DORR and Sedona.biz than the one they paid for, a professional survey that 2 to 1 were against the ownership of Hwy 89-A. Then they took a second survey on the city website with the same results. Furthermore the more people knew about Ownership of Hey 89-A the more they were against it.

    § Total lies about destruction of trees and shrubs in construction of lights when they know and heard ADOT’s expertise explained on trenching and boring with care, not destruction of trees and landscaping!

    § Peddling the idea of pedestrian lights going in instead of light poles which will ALSO according to their logic will kill the trees and shrubs they claim will be casualties if street light poles go up–there is no difference, the same underground power lines have to be placed in same locations.

    § Barbara Litrell is on record (yes, as KSB president) as opposing even the peripheral lighting nearby the Andante traffic signal which will be installed this winter. NO SAFETY MEASURES IN THIS LADY’S MIND!

    § This council did no due diligent examination of short or long term costs for owning this highway, ESPECIALLY the complete excavation and reconstruction of any highway when it reaches end of life 45-50 years (and this highway is now in year 35). One engineer says plan on $1Million per mile!

    § Claiming owning the highway “solves” all of our west Sedona corridor remodeling/restructuring hurdles with the wave of a hand. Re-planning west 89A will take 5 years minimum. And just guess how many millions Sedona will spend in THAT process. Consultants alone will eat up a lot of the money!

    § They have lied to you about the need for future Bonds, City Property Tax, and Increased Fees to pay for the ownership of Hwy 89-A. They have tried their best to mislead us and have not told the truth about continuous raised medians down Hwy 89-A.

    § City Council took advantage of us when they ran for office. They repeatedly told you they would not take ownership of Hwy 89-A and they repeatedly told you they would listen and abide by the Will of The People. They signed pledges to follow the will of the people and convinced us of Servant Leadership! Now we find it was all just political spin, never intended to follow their signed pledges to the Residents of Sedona.

    We have read your hundreds of letters and we know how discouraged you are by all of this but keep the faith! The community has the power both legally and on moral ground to force the City Council to listen to the will of the people and stop the city of Sedona from ownership of Hwy 89-A.

    What You can Do to Protect Sedona

    Email Barbara Litrell and your city council. “Ask Barbara Litrell and City Council—What has suddenly changed? You claim you want to hear our vote but you wouldn’t listen to the city website survey poll and you wouldn’t follow the $15,000 professional survey you (we!) paid for that told you by 2-1 margins we DID NOT WANT TO OWN HWY 89A!!! What changed? Nothing, you’re still playing your own political games and on your own agenda. The fact that ADOT is dropping the Transfer Agreement is a gift from heaven to us. THANK HEAVEN ADOT UNDERSTANDS PUBLIC SAFETY AND APPRECIATES THE VALUE OF HUMAN LIFE.
