Public Hearing on the Ogden Valley General Plan

Our apologies for the last minute notice, but the Public hearing on the Ogden Valley General Plan is:

Tuesday, August 30, 2016
Weber County Commission Chambers
10:00 am sharp

After extensive work and input from the Ogden Valley Planning Commission, involved citizens, the Planning Staff, Consultants Logan Simpson Design, and the County Commission, the hearing will be held Tuesday.

Unfortunately, the three person County Commission, none of whom live in Ogden Valley, have changed and softened some of the important areas of the proposed plan.

Attached is a redline version of the Update which shows changes made following the County Commission work sessions on it. It makes it a lot easier to determine what was changed. The highlights are...
  • Most of the "wills" were changed to "shoulds"
  • The "no bonus density" was changed to a less committed idea that we made need them to make TDR work.
  • The "no central sewer" was changed to language encouraging a central sewer and water system.

This is an extremely important event and we urge your attendance and input.

Received this from the Huntsville Town Newsletter:
An FYI for those of you who aren’t aware, the following agenda item was passed at the Weber County Commission meeting last Tuesday.
Request for approval to set the date of August 15, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. for a public hearing to consider a Weber County property tax increase of approximately 25% or $8,162,000 to fund employee compensation and capital projects.
A 25% increase?  Time to get out and make our voices heard. The meeting will take place in the Commission Chambers, 2380 Washington Blvd.  Tell your friends and neighbors, please!
