They make new friends, do lots of service, learn leadership skills, pad their résumé, and have fun!

With so many parks in the North Ogden area the featured park of the month is Mountain View Park at 875 East 3300 South. This park sits on 7 acres of ground, with a large playground, soccer area, and during the winter, a great sledding/ tubing area. There are 3 parking lots, restrooms and a pavilion. And if you want a great work-out, there is a side walk loop that is a 1/3 of a mile with the hills in there you have a wonderful workout.

Progress: ACE Hardware started construction. We were excited to see construction begin this week! A new beautiful building that will provide shopping convenience, tax dollars, and jobs for our citizens and City coming soon. More businesses are slated to come in the area. 

The Utah Division of Water Resources can neither confirm nor deny that hundreds of Utahans have been consumed by the Graboids from Tremors after multiple underground monsters broke through their landscapes due to shallow, overwatered root systems.

“It is OK this time of year to let your lawn’s roots reach a little deeper. This will make your landscape more resilient in the long-term, and your grass will be greener for it,” said Faye Rutishauser, Utah Division of Water Resources Water Conservation Coordinator. “Plus, shallow root systems put little protection between you and the Graboids,” Rutishauser said.

As a result, the division is asking most Utahans to wait a little longer before running their sprinkler systems, and to spot water dry areas. #H2Oath #SlowTheFlow
