Following a three hour, standing room only public hearing I attended last night (June 1st), Powder Mountain owner/developer representatives (Western America Holdings management company, Pronaia Capital Partners) Joseph Pierce and Steve Nielsen and 40 primarily Ogden Valley residents voiced their respective opinions, the Weber County commission unanimously approved a ten-point BINDING Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).  The MOU gives the green light for the development agreement (DA) process to move forward for Powder Mountain. Bottom line: 1477 units are allowed before a traffic safety/impact study of any type is conducted.  As defined in the MOU, a single family home represents one unit, while a 100 unit hotel would count as 33 units.  The developer stated over 80% of the total acreage...

(Content from the Ogden Valley Forum Website) In what must have been a stunning move to Powder Mountain, the Weber County Commission refused to act today on the Powder Mountain petition to name the Powderville town council and mayor. To say that the Weber County Commissioners were a little put out by the revised list of names submitted by Powder Mountain would be putting it mildly. Powder Mountain refused to include any names other than their original selection plus 3 spouses and two new individuals on the town council list presented to the Commissioners. Interviews of numerous other qualified residents were jointly conducted by the Commissioners and a representative from Powder Mountain. The two new individuals' names were not previously submitted to the commissioners nor were they int...

The commissioners asked Powder Mountain representati...

STAY TUNED!!!‘Powderville Six' to take on ski resort over vote By MARSHALL THOMPSON Standard-Examiner staff mthompson@standard.net     EDEN - As the Powder Mountain developers' petition to form a chunk of the Ogden Valley into a town moves forward, future residents are taking matters into their own hands.     A group of 40 voting-age residents met Friday to elect their own ad hoc council. Darla Van Zeben, Deja Mitchell, Jim Halay, Ryan Bushell, Layne Sheridan and Norman Belnap are the six people who will unofficially represent "Powderville," which is a nickname for the residential neighborhoods that were drawn into Powder Mountain Town without a vote.     "We agreed to work together on tactics and plans and report back to our residents," Halay said. "We elected a group to speak for us."...

The future of Powder Mountain, and the entire Ogden Valley is at stake.Regardless how you may feel about the bill that passed the Utah House and Senate in late 2007 (allows easy incporporation of a township with no vote required by those who find themselves within the township boundary, circumventing the county planning and zoning approval process), I recommend you subscribe to "The Ogden Valley Utah Forum" by clicking on this link: http://ogden-valley.blogspot.com/, then provide your email address under "For Email Updates, Subscribe Below" box.  In addition, if you feel strongly about allowing development to proceed at more reasonable density levels, I strongly recommend you sign the petition link on this same website.The ultimate decision around allowing the new Powder Mountain owners...
