What Bert Has To Say About Ogden-Clearfield Metro Area


Ogden is at the center of a flat plain, with clean and attractive family-friendly suburban communities spreading south that include Clearfield, Layton, Kaysville and Farmington. Ogden is sort of the unassuming, shy but quietly prosperous little sister of the booming “SLC” (Salt Lake City) and Provo to the south. The large Hill Air Force Base is a major employer, and the area also hosts a number of mostly technology-oriented manufacturers. These include Thiokol, Iomega, and Levelor, as well as a large processing center for the IRS. The area is a freight transportation hub, as goods arrive by road and rail through canyons to the east and are rerouted to all points west.
