The Council continues to focus on ways to cultivate neighborhoods of choice and improve the quality of life for all Ogden residents.
Quality Neighborhoods Initiative
The Quality Neighborhoods Initiative continues to be a budget priority, with $1 million allocated to this effort. The initiative is the City’s plan to stabilize and revitalize Ogden’s neighborhoods by establishing a pattern of public investment that catalyzes desirable and appropriate community development. In redeveloping neighborhoods, creating this investment environment involves building on the bright spots that exist within the neighborhood, while removing impediments to investment.

Ogden is actively engaged in the Ogden Community Action Network (OgdenCAN) to support health, education, and housing opportunities in the East Central Neighborhood.
Neighbor Up Grant Program
The Council is launching the Neighbor Up grant program this year. Residents or neighborhood associations may apply for up to $1,000 for activities such as block parties, picnics, neighborhood crime prevention, trainings, and other gatherings that build connections between neighbors. Grants are also available to fund supplies for neighborhood cleanup and beautification projects.
