Planners from Utah and Idaho will descend on Ogden this September for APA Utah’s 2023 Fall Conference. With two days of presentations addressing both urban and rural planning needs, the Fall Conference highlights content for professional planners, citizen planners, and elected officials.

Mobile tours will also provide case studies in planning and environmental developments in the Ogden area.
