Reminder: Ogden Valley General Plan Workshop Tonight

Don't forget the "What if" workshop tonight.  While we suspect the intentions of the county are honorable with regard to the "plan" for the valley, it is important our rank and file citizens attend and provide input.  

We received an interesting email recently from a California contractor and developer with ties to Ogden Valley, and feel it important to share:
Are you going to the meeting on 26 Feb for the workshop?  Do we know what they are up to?  Do you realize that these meetings with these formats are designed to divide and conquer?  It should be turned into a regular meeting where people speak to a general audience with or without a moderator. This is very effective in getting locals to agree to things that they never dreamed of.   
I see less water and more houses coming out of this.

We have to agree.  While we appreciate the request for input, quite often those who provide the 'input' (or are asking for the input) are those who have a different view of how the valley should look in 20-30 years from now.  Often the input comes from developers or investors who are scheming to make a fortune at the expense of those who choose to make Ogden Valley their home.

Attend tonight and speak up.

Project Overview

The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) is conducting a Transportation Study in Ogden Canyon. The Transportation Commission asked UDOT to conduct the study and look at all modes of transportation in the canyon. The purpose of the study is to gather and share information in an interactive and transparent process to develop an understanding of the safety and mobility needs in the canyon.
The study analysis includes existing and future safety concerns, traffic volumes, resident needs, economic needs, multi-modal uses (biking, truck traffic, pedestrian, transit, etc.), recreational uses, environmental concerns, geotechnical/geologic concerns, etc.
