On Tuesday, July 14 at 6pm, the Ogden City Council will host a virtual meeting to discuss the final details of the Southeast Ogden Community Plan with the public.
For more than a year, the plan has been refined to meet the needs of the community’s residents through five Steering Committee Meetings and two Open Houses. Last December, the Ogden City Planning Commission unanimously recommended to the City Council that the plan be approved. This last discussion will be the final opportunity for the public to submit their feedback before the City Council formally considers the plan.
“We’re proud and very appreciative of the hard work that the Steering Committee and Ogden City Planning Staff have put into the careful consideration of crafting this new plan for Southeast Ogden,” Council Chair Angela Choberka said. “As a Council, we’re excited to share the details of the plan and hear what they have to say before it’s considered for adoption.”
The Southeast Ogden Community Plan is designed to address the following four priorities with accompanying vision statements:
Land Use – “For Southeast Ogden to be a community that strengthens single-family neighborhoods, protects trails and open spaces with appropriate zoning, and encourages quality/unique commercial and multiple-family developments along Harrison Blvd. and the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line.”
Housing – “Preserving existing single-family neighborhoods, while providing additional housing options for the future growth anticipated in the SE Ogden Community over the next 10–15 years.”
Parks & Open Space – “Southeast Ogden being a community where all people can enjoy open spaces, including parks and trails which provide accessibility, amenities, and green space preservation.”
Transportation – “Southeast Ogden is a community where all people can enjoy transportation choices that fit their needs and an infrastructure that supports safety, accessibility, and connected neighborhoods.”
