We are looking to move to Utah and was just wondering if any of you out there could give me some info on Morgan County and what it's like there. How would the commute be from Morgan to Ogden/Layton. My family is use to the rural lifestyle and think this woudl be a great area---but who knows. I would appreciate any advice you would have about living in Morgan. How is the land/home prices ect.?

thanks for the info

Look up www.morgan-county.net for more information on our county. It is still rural compared to Ogden and Layton. They are both approximately 25 minutes by freeway from Morgan City. Mt. Green is next to Weber County (Ogden) and only takes about 15 minutes. The county is becoming quite popular and is expected to double its current population of 8k within 5-7 years.
The land prices are high due to the popularity. A quarter acre lot in the city may cost about $90k. The county may be higher because it would be a larger lot.
The average house price in the county is probably about $300k. These prices are comparable to the benches of Layton, Kaysville ect. Clearfield and Ogden are much less expensive.
The county is surrounded by mountains, so it is considered a mountain valley. There are many recreational activities, skiing, kayaking, boating, fishing, biking, running, camping.
There is one elementary (another to be complete for 2008 in Mt. Green), one middle school and one high school; all next to each other.
There are very few employment opportunities in the County. Browning Arms, Holcim cement plant and the school district are the major employers. The county also does not have much retail shopping. One grocery store, five gas stations, one bank and two credit unions.
Hope that is helpful.
