Make Ogden

After several years of planning, including extensive public input, Ogden City’s Make Ogden Downtown Master Plan was adopted in 2020 – establishing a 25-year vision to guide the growth and development of downtown Ogden. Ogden City holds monthly "You MAKE Ogden" meetings to discuss elements of the plan.

The primary purposes of the Make Ogden Downtown Master Plan are to increase the City’s capacity to build sustainable economic vitality going forward, and to enhance the attractiveness of downtown by increasing the number of jobs, housing options, pedestrian activity, public transportation, one-of-a-kind stores/restaurants/venues, and the overall downtown experience – all powerful economic factors that will improve the lives of residents and bolster the City’s financial health MakeOgdenPlan Cover Art Opens in new windowand prosperity.

The six tenets of the Make Ogden Downtown Master Plan include:

  • Real Estate and Land Use
  • Historic and Cultural Assets
  • Transportation and Mobility
  • Parks and Open Space
  • Social Equity
  • Essential Services

These tenets will be addressed through an orchestrated effort to promote the infill of the downtown core, attract employment, improve access to social services and amenities, coordinate public transit and open space systems, and provide variety and equity in housing opportunity. 

Currently, Ogden City Community and Economic Development is moving forward with several projects related to "Episode 1" of Make Ogden, including the proposed WonderBlock Development, and a Downtown Parking Management System. Additionally, the future plans related to enhancements at the historic Ogden Union Station are currently being developed, and a series of public engagement activities will be taking place during the summer and fall of 2023. More information is available at the Future of Union Station.
