West Haven, western Weber Co. cities register fastest growth, new data shows

Thursday , May 24, 2018 - 5:15 AM

WEST HAVEN — Population growth in Weber County, perhaps not surprisingly, has been most pronounced in cities in the western part of the county, where more undeveloped open space is available to accommodate annexation, new homes and more people.

More specifically, West Haven ranked as the fastest-growing city in Weber County dating to 2010, registering a 31.7 percent population jump, from 10,272 in 2010 to 13,532 last year, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures released Thursday.

Scroll down for the detailed data.

Next on the list of fastest-growing cities in the span, all on the northern and western periphery of incorporated Weber County, were Pleasant View, up 28.9 percent; Plain City, up 23.5 percent; Hooper, up 20.1 percent; and Farr West, up 18 percent.

Ogden, Weber County’s largest city, registered the largest numeric jump in the seven years, up 4,206 people to 87,031 overall last year, which represents a 5.1 percent increase. But Ogden and other more landlocked cities located closer to the Wasatch Front experienced lower rates of growth, perhaps reflecting the limited availability of space for new houses compared to western Weber County communities.

As more homes have sprouted in western Weber County, some farmers and longtime residents in the zone have watched with concern, worried the more rural, agricultural feel will be lost to suburban sprawl. Weber County officials are in the midst of gathering feedback from residents in the zone for ideas on how to guide development in the unincorporated area in light of their worries.

Here’s more from the new U.S. Census data, featuring population estimates for 2017 for U.S. cities:

    • The collective growth from 2010 to 2017 in the six cities ringing Weber County’s population cluster to the north and west — West Haven, Pleasant View, Plain City, Hooper, Marriott-Slaterville and Farr West — totaled 24.5 percent. The numeric jump totaled 9,451, from 38,574 to 48,025.
    • The growth in the eight more landlocked cities east of the ring cities — Harrisville, North Ogden, Ogden, Roy, Riverdale, South Ogden, Uintah and Washington Terrace — totaled 5.6 percent. The numeric jump totaled 9,997, from 177,980 to 187,977.
    • West Haven ranked as the 11th-fastest growing Utah city with a current population of more than 5,000 between 2010 and 2017, according to the new numbers. Pleasant View ranked 14th. Farmington ranked as the fastest-growing city in Davis County and the 12th-fastest in Utah.
    • Weber County had a much higher population count in its unincorporated expanses as of 2017, compared to Davis County to the south. In Weber County, 15,130 people lived in unincorporated zones, 6 percent of the county’s total population, compared to 3,566 in Davis County, just 1 percent of the population there.
