Welcome Letter from Randy Barbour, President of the PVPOA, 2022

Welcome to Pine Valley!

Nestled within the Munds Mountain Wilderness, we are surrounded by the beauty of the Red Rocks and share our lands with the desert plants and animals that also call this place home. Our Pine Valley neighborhood is a unique, beautiful, and wonderful place to live.

The Pine Valley Property Owners Association (PVPOA) is a group who works together to make our neighborhood a safer and more connected place to live.

Membership in our group is open to all Pine Valley property owners as well as anyone renting a home in our community. Membership is voluntary. Our members pay a small annual fee of $35.00 to support the activities of the association and benefit the community as a whole.

Our activities:

  • We maintain the cattle fences surrounding our neighborhood.
  • We provide dumpsters twice yearly to dispose of plant debris that might otherwise serve as fuel for wildfires.
  • We maintain the Pine Valley entry sign, and last year purchased and distributed fire alert signs throughout the community.
  • We maintain an open and productive communication with the National Forest Service on issues with hiking trails, Firewise activities, and preservation of the Munds Mountain Wilderness which surrounds Pine Valley.
  • We work with the Pine Valley Water Company and the Sedona Fire District to regularly test water pressure at our fire hydrants.

Another great benefit of membership is our summer BBQ and an end-of-the year holiday party.  This is a great way to meet and socialize with your neighbors every spring and winter.

I hope you’ll find our website informative and useful. Inside you’ll find information on local emergency services, the Code Red emergency alert system, further information on how to join the PVPOA, and lots of other useful information.

Welcome to the neighborhood.

Randy Barbour

President, PVPOA

Verde Valley Neighborhood Food Project (The Green Bag Project)

by Editorial Team | Comments Off on Verde Valley Neighborhood Food Project (The Green Bag Project)

For several years, the Green Bag Program has been very successful in the VOC and Pine Valley. For our area, currently the project is called Verde Valley Neighborhood Food Project.

You may not expect this, but in the Verde Valley, including Sedona, many people go hungry. This program helps fight hunger in our community. The following information is taken from the VV Neighborhood Food Project’s website (


“A Simple System That Really Works.

EVERY 2 MONTHS—on the second Saturday of every even month—our Neighborhood Coordinators pick up bags of healthy nonperishable food that neighbors have left outside their front doors. They leave empty green bags for next time, and take all the food to local Food Banks. It’s that easy!”

Forest Service Sub-Committee Update and Comments Request

by Editorial Team | Comments Off on Forest Service Sub-Committee Update and Comments Request”>To Our Pine Valley Community:

Many of you are familiar with the recent trail building activity by the US Forest Service (USFS) immediately west of Pine Valley which has occurred over the past several months. Increasing visitor activity throughout the Sedona area prompted USFS to develop new routes to ease crowded trail and trailhead conditions. This particular project was authorized in 2018.

However, few (if any) Pine Valley residents were aware of the plan until trail building was underway since the USFS did not adequately notify potentially affected parties. With the recent completion, Pine Valley residents are already noting an increase in audible noise, visual intrusion, general invasion of seclusion and privacy based on the placement of the trail on the Pine Valley side of the ridge, lost hikers showing up on private property, and non-residents driving through Pine Valley seeking shortcuts to the trail system.
