The new plan has been carefully crafted. The petitioners waited five months, found a different parcel located in the AV-3 zone, filed a design for review with the county planning office right before the holidays on December 23rd, and have changed the type of facility from a "Residential Treatment Facility" to a "School," since a school is permitted in the AV-3 zone.
While rumors have been mentioned in recent weeks, no one knew for sure until the Ogden Valley News published this article in their January 15th issue.
Ogden Valley Planning News - Eden Heliport and Resident Treatment Center on January 25 agenda
Neighbors of the Treatment facility (we will call it what it is) have been busy organizing and will be holding another meeting on:
Thursday, January 20, 2011
Weber County Library - Ogden Valley Branch in Huntsville
The proposal will go before the Ogden Planning Commission:
January 25, 2011
Weber County Commission Chambers
2380 Washington Blvd.
During the last citizen's meeting, these documents were disseminated:
Letter from Weber County Engineer's office to WC Planning Dept. regarding the GVA development
Site plan of the proposed site drawn by a resident who viewed the plans at the Planning Department
Now is not the time to be complacent. This is an Ogden Valley issue, not just an issue for the neighbors of this facility. Once the camel gets his nose in the tent, there will certainly be more similar facilities to come.
Will the next one be next to you?
