The Ogden Valley has seen a significant escalation in development in the last decade. This development surge has outpaced the ability of the Valley to benefit from responsible planning and oversight as originally conceived in the General Plan. The accelerated growth has resulted in significant resource depletion, pollution, increased traffic, and property tax increases that have impacted local property owners.
The Valley Citizens for Responsible Development (VCRD) is a non profit corporation of Valley citizens dedicated to a more measured and responsible growth pace in Ogden Valley, and will evaluate and respond to any development proposals that would further erode the ambiance and rural characteristics highly cherished in our Valley. The VCRD intends to provide a forum and voice for Valley citizens to have a proactive role in current and future Ogden Valley development.
During the April 18, 2012 Annual Membership meeting to be held at 7 PM at the Huntsville Library Auditorium there will be an election of 4 Board of Trustee positions. These positions will serve until the Annual Membership meeting in 2015. Board members must have current VCRD membership. Membership in the VCRD is $10 annually per person.
Two Ogden Valley advocacy groops merged on March 1, 2011. The Ogden Valley Protection Council (OVPC) merged with the VCRD under the VCRD title. The VCRD has expanded the Board of Trustees to 11 members from 7
to include four new members from the OVPC.
