Councilmember Celia Barotz was elected to the Flagstaff City Council for a four-year term in May 2010. As the top vote getter in the 2010 election, she was selected by her colleagues on the City Council to serve as Vice-Mayor from 2010 to 2012. 

Celia’s seven years of experience on a wide variety of local boards and commissions, including the Coconino County Planning and Zoning Commission, City of Flagstaff Planning and Zoning Commission, City of Flagstaff Water Commission, City of Flagstaff Open Spaces Commission, City of Flagstaff Board of Adjustment, and Mountain Line Citizen’s Review Commission provided a solid foundation for running for the City Council.

In her first two years on Council, Celia was the City Council representative on the Flagstaff City-Coconino County Public Library Board and Northern Arizona Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (NAIPTA). She is currently serving her second year as the Chair of the Board of NAIPTA, the City Council representative on the Board of Directors of the Flagstaff Cultural Partners and the City of Flagstaff Audit Committee. Celia has a keen interest in the areas of land use and zoning and has worked hard to help secure the protection of Picture Canyon, Observatory Mesa and several key parcels of city owned land.

Her professional experience includes practicing real estate and land use law, coordinating the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program for Coconino County Superior Court in Flagstaff and mediating and arbitrating civil and family law cases. Celia co-manages a family owned real estate investment portfolio. In addition she is a Special Projects for the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff. She earned a Bachelor of Science, cum laude, from the University of Vermont, a Juris Doctor from Tulane University and a member of the Connecticut Bar.

Celia loves to explore the Flagstaff Urban Trail System, hike with her dog Bailey in the forests around Flagstaff, and practice yoga.
