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.
- 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.
Although it doesn’t feel like Fall as we are strangulated in green weeds from the monsoons rains, it will be shortly. Get those weeds whacked and pulled now before they dry up and become fire tinder! If you haven’t already given your drainage culverts and swales attention, please do so.
On a sad note, Vic Lucas resigned as president of our organization. His letter to the board is copied below. As election of new officers is in December, Vice President Phil Cox will assume the president’s seat for the balance of the year.
Vic was a pleasure to work with and served our organization well – very grateful for his years of service.
Please consider running for a board officer seat for 2022. We will be soliciting nominations beginning next month. Contact any officer to discuss your interest or just to learn more. Continue Reading →

“SEDONA – (July 15, 2021) – Sedona Fire District (SFD) will lift all fire restrictions previously in effect for all portions of the fire district effective Friday, July 16, 2021, at 06:00 am. This move is in coordination with Coconino County, Coconino National Forest, and Kaibab National Forest. Areas outside of Sedona Fire District boundaries within Yavapai County are still subject to Staged Fire Restrictions per the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors. ‘The metrics that we use to determine fire restrictions and fire danger ratings are based on the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFRDS). Right now the NFRDS is showing that we are trending towards a more moderate fire danger level,’ said Sedona Fire Marshal Jon Davis.”
