Ogden Valley General Plan

The Ogden Valley General Plan was adopted by Weber County in 1998 and the “Recreation Element” was adopted in 2006. In 2014 the County Commission contracted with Logan Simpson Design to update the General Plan.

The first draft of the update to the General Plan was released October 26, 2015 and can be found through this link. Click here to access the main website for the update project. At present it appears public comments on the draft will be accepted until the end of November, although GEM continues to request a longer period to consider the implications of changes made to our general plan.


Toward the end of February 2015, Logan Simpson Design held an open house to present three scenarios for the future and hear how Valley residents react to them. General Plan Update – Scenarios for the future

 The Recreation Element of the General Plan paints this Vision (2006-2015)

  1. Ogden Valley can become a premiere resort community of hamlets and open space that competes favorably with resort areas like Stowe, Telluride, Aspen and Sun Valley.
  2. Our development can be a differentiated alternative to Park City and Summit County as a place to live and recreate.
  3. Ogden Valley could be – with properly planned development – a significant contributor to Weber County’s economy and tax base by attracting visitors, second home buyers and quality recreational resorts.
  4. Several high quality resorts located around a valley with protected natural amenities, rural atmosphere and open space would provide us with competitive advantage.
  5. Continuing status-quo will not achieve the above.

The 2015 update of the General Plan may paint a different picture
