The primary purposes of the Make Ogden Downtown Master Plan are to increase the City’s capacity to build sustainable economic vitality going forward, and to enhance the attractiveness of downtown by increasing the number of jobs, housing options, pedestrian activity, public transportation, one-of-a-kind stores/restaurants/venues, and the overall downtown experience – all powerful economic factors that will improve the lives of residents and bolster the City’s financial health and prosperity for generations to come.
The Make Ogden Downtown Master Plan recognizes that the Ogden we know and love was born out of Ogden’s Union Station. As such, the restoration and redevelopment of the Union Station is seen as the pinnacle of Make Ogden. As Make Ogden works to build economic sustainability, a renewed Ogden Union Station will once again be positioned as the heart of downtown.
No. The current Union Station facility will not be torn down or removed. Any potential changes will be enhancements to restore and preserve the Station.
Union Station is the heart of our city and the jewel of the Make Ogden Downtown Master Plan. The main portions of the building, including the Grand Hall, have been on the National Registry of Historic Places since 1973 and the facility is one of the most vital assets of the community.

The museums at Union Station will certainly be maintained, and a number of key enhancements are being considered. For example, current concepts consider moving the museum collections into a new, state-of-the-art facility on the site. This would provide a better environment for the collections and an opportunity to present current and new exhibits in new and exciting ways.
While there is still a lot of input to consider before actual Union Station Campus plans are finalized, it is certainly anticipated that community event space will be a strong component of the historic site. Currently proposed concepts include connections throughout the campus to attractive public spaces -- supporting special events and our unique Museums.
