Homeless people don't just move to Sedona! Get real! They were there long before they were homeless,or went there for a reason! Some have had family there for generations, and didn't leave while others were forced to leave because of the city turning into a tourist/vortex/cult capitol! The taxes got irrational..
People all over have economic trouble at times in their life(like for the last 3 1/2 years esp!)and going to a big city is not always the answer! Being poor in Sedona is like being middle class income in Phoenix! All the prices got jacked way up because wealthy people started buying vacation homes there! Obama should go spread their wealth! I bet most voted for him.. These people have ruined the serene peaceful little town and turned it into the Red Rock Disneyland of Northern AZ!
I know a lot of people in Flagstaff and the Verde valley that were from Sedona, or their families pioneered Sedona were sickened by what has moved into that town! They don't even want an America flag to fly, have a big debate over it!
We used to have a joke in Flagstaff in the 1980's when I was growing up, they put all the homeless drug addict bums on buses, and trains and sent them to Flagstaff! That was really no joke, we used to have a lot there and it was a lot smaller, it really grown since then!
So "why would a homeless person go to a small town" You tell me? And tell me why they stopped coming?! We got a good Mission, and built it bigger! People helping others, giving donating money is why, you don't see near as many there any more out on the streets.. The people of Sedona have no Mission just Cult centers, mother earth retreats, where they rake in stupid people from back east and take a lot of money from them, so they can go sweat to death in a tent! It's a sad sight!

WOW why would homeless people want to be in a small resort town?
Wouldn't they go to the big cities get retrained and or educated and find gainful employment. Many homeless people need first housing and social service if they have psychiatric issues theY can get on medication and be stabalized. The big cities are more capable of addressing these sorts of issues, so the basic needs can be met. A study called, Crazy determined that the majority people on the streets had mental issues or addictions. Sad but true. Why would would the homeless and jobless go to a small town like Sedona? It doesn't make any sense. My sister lives in a wealthy, retirement town and there are no homeless if you saw one it would be very, very strange. Las Vegas deal with my giving them a one way ticket out there because it effects tourism badly. I think we should learn from London how to deal with this issue better. Who know maybe we will see poor farms once again.

I live in Cottonwood. I like it,we have a mixture of people a lot of retired folks,then your middle classed everyday families raising their kids... We have some great Christian schools,good choice of churches to choose from, decent shopping, and some really good restaurants for a town our size(Camp Verde,Jerome, and Clarkdale do also! I like that we are very centrally located, 1hr to Prescott, 1 hour to Flagstaff, Phoenix is 90 miles, if you need or want the big city.. We have a new clean good Hospital.. When you live in Cottonwood,you are part of the Verde Valley community, Camp Verde, Jerome, Clarkdale, Cornville..There is a lot of fun little shops to go see in old town, and in Jerome. Our weather is good, it's does not get as hot as Phx,when it does get above 100 it always cools down at night unlike Phx, we get a little snow in the winter that usually will not stick..I raised my kids here, and I think it has some great things to offer.. There are a lot of nice houses for sale here for great prices due to the economy right now.. I never dreamed I would live here, and have been here 18 years, The Verde Valley grows on you.:)

Hearing of Sedona reminds me of Park City, UT. I've spoken with one person who works in Sedona and that experience was pleasant. Very helpful. I've heard of the new age/hippie problem, which is simply the opposite of the common closed and static mind of the typical "consumer". Neither are ideal.
I want to live some place where the people are spiritually-inclined. It's good to hear that Tuscon is a nice place. How legit is that comment, though?

This is SO NOT true! I live in Sedona and I am not any of those that you discribed. Unless you actually live in Sedona, you will never truly know what it is like. The experience is not the same for those visiting here.

You can use those two words to describe any town or city in the USA!
That does not mean everyone! That is stereotyping and not true, we have decent families and people who come here to retire,it's a good community, unless you choose to hang out with the druggies! Your life your choice!

I dont think those two words discribe many cities...Sedona is one. I will also add that I am the furthest thing from a "druggie" as they come. I do however happen to work in law enforcement, so I can speak first hand on numbers and stats from Cottonwood and surrounding areas, so I am very aware of the reality that exists.

I just returned from a visit to Sedona and my wife and I trully enjoyed it. I was there back in 1998 and it has clearly expanded. I didn't witness any homless problem? Coming from Brooklyn New York where we are flooded with homeless, drug addicts, and illegal alliens. I guess every town has its own variation of degenerates? I for one see Sedona as a recession proof area to live and work due to the enormous attraction by the flow of visitors. It can't be much worse than NY where some saleries haven't gone up in 20 years and taxes are high.

Well, rustnchrome, thanks for your views. I hear that the rats have taken over in NYC....last I heard the furry little rodents outnumber the human population by 6 to 1. Well, thanks Mr. Bloomberg from saving New Yorkers from the evils of "too large" soft drinks. Whaddaguy, eh?

Sedona is really not a place to live. People are rude and illiterate. Bunch of woo woos believe in vortexes and physics and all the other nonsense. Uptown is a tourist trap, restaurants are overly priced with poor food quality. Sedona is only good for what made Sedona famous to begin with which are red rocks and hiking trails. They are great but that is about it. The people here are just hideous and tourism is ruining this great wonder of the world.
