Strategic Directives

The Five-Year Strategic Plan features the Strategic Directives of Economic Development, Community Safety, Recreation, and City Image & Appearance as the guides for prioritization in decision-making. An independent committee developed the plan's directives after countless hours of interaction with Ogden residents.

The details of the plan and its directives can be found on this page on the Council's website.



The City Council adopts a budget for Ogden City, the Redevelopment Agency and Municipal Building Authority. The budget is one of the Council’s strongest policy-making tools because it is an effective way to set goals and establish priorities.
