Standard-Examiner Davis Bureau

LAYTON — During the next three decades, living space is going to be a little tighter in Weber and Davis counties.

The two counties, and many of the cities within them, will grow exponentially during the next 30 years, according to recently released population forecasts from the Wasatch Front Regional Council.

The WFRC, the state’s transportation planning arm, took total population estimates made by the Utah Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget for Weber and Davis counties, then, with the help of a professional demographer, broke down estimates for each city within the two counties.
