The Uptown Sedona parking meters have been turned off temporarily. The City of Sedona made the goodwill gesture to both visitors and businesses after the COVID-19 shutdown in March. Visitors have noticed a brown cover over the pay to park meters and still ask if paying to park is necessary. The good news is not for now. Once tourism picks up, Sedona will start charging to park again. Until then, enjoy free parking in all of the Sedona parking lots.
