Jesus Lopez Jr., Standard-Examiner -- This week, Ogden officials announced plans to revitalize the area. If plans come to fruition, the area will have a chance to reclaim some of its economic glory. On Wednesday, Ogden City held a special open house and ground breaking at the Ogden Exchange Building, 600 W. Exchange Road.
The project will utilize the surrounding 60 acres to create a new outdoor industry cluster around the old stockyards in West Ogden. The result will be a light-manufacturing, industrial and business park in an area that for decades lacked any major business activity.
