Ogden has seen unprecedented growth and success in the last several years, but we can’t keep up our incredible progress if we don’t have a way to move forward. Transportation is a fundamental aspect of a safe, livable community. We have to prepare now for the population increase that will double over the next 30 years. Over the last decade, we have worked to organize and secure funding for the Ogden Bus Rapid Transit Project (BRT). Currently, we are in the final stages of approval from the Federal Transportation Administration in Washington D.C. This 70-million-dollar project would create millions in transportation-oriented development and would put Ogden at the forefront of transportation development in the state! This BRT project will further connect our downtown to the university and provide reliable transportation to employment opportunities for our community. Ogden is ranked one of the top performing recruitment operations in the nation, and we will continue to lead in business development as we invest in our transportation infrastructure. With all of this expected growth comes the responsibility to look at all forms of transportation, over the course of my office we have created a bike/ped master plan, invested in complete streets embraced all forms of alternative transportation and have connected our community by building a walkable, inviting downtown. I love Ogden and want to see such major projects through for our community.
