East Central Revitalization Study

Ogden, UT

Affordable Housing Analysis & Strategy

The City of Ogden has endured a 25-year period of slow economic decline. czb came to Ogden to provide recommendations on how to revitalize East Central, a special collection of neighborhoods in the city. General declining interest in living in Ogden had led to a decline in property value appreciation throughout the city. Aging stock, a hard-to-market downtown, and disinvestment all contributed to a growing sense that the city was not moving in the right direction.

Creating a community of choice

czb’s report outlined Ogden’s current trajectory and its set of most pressing challenges, including the challenge of creating a diverse workforce, the perceived marginalization of the Mexican-American community, the challenge of creating a more diverse housing stock, and the challenges faced by its public school system.

Our analysis showed that East Central’s neighborhoods could not be revitalized without disaggregating the present concentration of low-income households in East Central and that any intervention by the City of Ogden must result in reduced rates of poverty and increased homeownership in targeted areas of the city.
