OGDEN, Utah -- The city of Ogden is seeking to re-brand itself in an effort to increase business numbers.

The re-branding campaign is called Re-Ogden. Billboards have gone up advertising the campaign, showing that Ogden has cleaned up areas once covered in pollutants and hazardous substances.

City leaders said the campaign is a result of a $400,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency that was given to the city in 2009. That money helped Ogden redevelop contaminated land within the city.

While the city has redeveloped hundreds of acres, city leaders said there are hundreds of acres more to clean up. They said they want people to be aware of their progress, and they will issue all of their results so far on Ogden's website.
