The Marshall White Advisory Committee has been established with the purpose of guiding the future development and improvement of the Marshall White Center and are releasing a public input survey for the month of February. The survey is intended to receive public input on what changes the community would like to see at the center, including classes, programs, amenities, and the overall atmosphere. The survey is in English and Spanish. Physical copies can be picked up at the Marshall White Center or mailed to those who are not able to complete the online version. The newly formed Marshall White Advisory Committee hopes to reach at least 900 Weber County residents who are willing to complete the survey. The survey is available February 1st through February 28th and can be found by visiting www.ogdencity.com/marshallwhitecentersurvey.
The Marshall White Center was named after Detective Sergeant Marshall White. He was killed in the line of duty in 1963. He was an Army Air Corps veteran of World War II and was in law enforcement for fifteen years. White had a passion for bringing new opportunities to Ogden’s youth and making sure there was somewhere for them to go. The center has helped serve people in the community from diverse backgrounds.
Ron White, the son of Marshall White and the chair for the Advisory Committee, had this to say about the survey: “Help us to help Ogden City be most productive! I just want to thank all those who worked to bring the Marshall White Community Center Advisory Committee together and thank the committee for their work to bring this survey to fruition. We need as many Ogden residents as possible to complete the survey to voice the services and programs they need to improve their futures.”
The Marshall White Center and Ogden City has hired VCBO Architecture to help with the renovation and community outreach. “VCBO Architecture is so excited to be a part of the visioning for the Marshall N. White Community Center. Through this process, we are looking forward to exploring opportunities to improve the Marshall N. White Center and ensure it meets the needs of the community for generations to come,” said Whitney Ward, a representative of the company.
