Ogden Valley Design Charrette to be presented tonight.

The Ogden Valley Design Charrette is complete.  The results are stunning and imaginative.  The Utah State University Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning student team leaders are fully prepared to present their findings and recommendations.

Their first presentation is to County Commissioners Gibson, Zogmaister, and Bell on 1 April 2014 at 7:00 pm in the County Commission Chambers at 2380 Washington Blvd in Ogden.  Ogden Valley Planning Commissioners, Weber County Planning Division, GEM Committee members, and valley residents are invited to attend this presentation.  The 15 charrette team leaders will summarize and highlight their work in an hour-long slide show.  The 63 charrette posters will be taped to the walls of the overflow room at the back of the Commission Chambers.  Attendees may view the posters beginning at 6:00 pm and continue after the formal presentation to the County Commissioners.  The team leaders will be available for questions and comments.

The second presentation will be at Snowcrest Junior High School in Eden.  The 63 charrette posters will be on display in the balcony area up the stairs and overlooking the library.  Valley residents can come anytime from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm Monday through Thursday, 14 through 17 April 2014.  Visitors are welcome to spend as much or as little time as they wish studying or scanning the posters.  It’s easy to get to where the posters will be displayed.  Go through the main entrance, left past the administrative offices, across the large foyer, into the library, and up the stairs.  The Snowcrest administrative staff, faculty, and librarians will see that you get to where the posters are.  There will be paper and envelopes available for your comments and questions.

The 2014 Ogden Valley Design Charrette does not constitute the final plan for the future of Ogden Valley.  It is an important to step to visually display some ideas and gather thoughts and comments from valley residents.  The Weber County Commissioners have allocated money to engage a professional planning firm this year.  April 1 and April 14 - 17 are two of your chances to point these professionals in the right direction before they submit their proposals and the winner starts work.

By far the best way to ensure your ideas and comments enter the public record and are fully considered is to email them to the Weber County Planning Division at
