2023 Fall Conference, September 29, 2023 10:10 am

Ever feel like it has to be done wrong in order to convince folks to do it right? This session explores the politics of burgeoning development in agrarian areas and how to help a community overcome the fear of change that leads to a poorly planned future. Reserving big opportunities while growing incrementally is key. In this session we will explore ways that Weber County is attempting to guide predominantly conservative unincorporated rural communities in both Western Weber and the upper Ogden Valley toward better community outcomes despite historically being overallocated with large-lot single-family residential zoning.
