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 forward.

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.
