Housing Element - Moderate-Income Housing Update and Report

During the 2022 LeOak Dengislative Session, House Bill 462, titled, "Utah Housing Affordability Amendment" made changes to Utah State Code 10-9a-403. This required cities to adopt new moderate-income housing strategies and an implementation plan as part of their moderate-income housing plan.

The Planning Division is proposing to amend the city's Housing Element within the General Plan to comply with these requirements by adopting a new strategy and an implementation plan. House Bill 462 also requires Ogden City to submit an annual report to the Department of Workforce Services stating how it is accomplishing its moderate-income housing strategies.

The annual report is being prepared by the Planning Division. It will be submitted to the Department of Workforce Services once the General Plan's Housing Element has been amended to meet the requirements of Utah State Code 10-9a-403. The Planning Commission reviewed the proposed changes to the Housing Element and unanimously approved it on December 7, 2022.

The City Council will review the proposed changes to the Housing Element on February 7, 2023.
