Growing with Excellence, a community Mandate (GEM)
The Ogden Valley GEM Committee began in 2006 and continues with the sole purpose of engaging our community in pursuit of our Ogden Valley General Plan. The General Plan exist as a legal guide to our Planning Commission and County Commission…every land use decision, from approvals to ordinance changes, should be consistent with our General Plan. GEM exists to make sure Commission decisions are consistent with our General Plan.
Our 1999 General Plan was updated in 2005 and again in 2016. If you haven’t read the 2016 update, you should. It paints a fairly complete picture of what we intend to preserve as the Valley soon grows to 3-4 times the number of dwellings and people we now have. The goals and principles describe what we must do to end up with what we want.
