Nordic Valley Seeking Conditional Use Permit For Ogden Valley's Tallest Building

Another important meeting is scheduled for Tuesday evening and there has been very little notice of the big event.

Nordic Valley is seeking approval to construct the tallest building in the valley - a five story condominium project with 54 units and an additional 54 lockouts, for a total of 108 units.

According to a former fire captain, one of the reasons for the current height restriction is the inability of the fire department to reach and fight a tall structure fire.

They are also proposing to pipe the sewage to the Wolf Creek Wolf Creek processing plant, which means 60 or so residents are legally obligated to destroy their septic systems and connect. It appears the rules are not clear about whether or not residents can get exceptions.

The GEM committee (Growth with Excellence Mandate) decided to defend the Valley against the Conditional Use Permit for a gigantic condo project adjacent to an existing Nordic Valley neighborhood. And make no mistake about it, this building is is has the square footage of a Walmart super center and is taller than any building from the Valley all the way to I-15. It is double the size of any building permitted in our land use code.

We carefully researched the law and find that our Planning Commission has full authority and obligation to make approval/denial decisions about conditional use permits consistent with our General Plan and Land Use Code (ordinances). GEM has put together a legal framework we hope will empower the Planning Commission to make a decision to deny the condo project in its current form.

As soon as I figure out how to do it, a copy of the legal framework will be posted on this blog.
