(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you travel up and down interstate 15, I guarantee you’ve observed Brandon Fugal’s name on symptoms. As the Chairman of Colliers Global, Brandon is what I like to call the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to economic traits.
A single of the greatest tendencies Brandon likes to discuss about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Company District.” We frequented about a new making climbing in downtown Provo referred to as “Freedom Commons,” and is the 1st “Class A” office area constructing in Provo in about a decade (observe the online video to get the relaxation of the particulars).
My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to uncover “people, areas and factors you may possibly not know about.” Brandon shared the next specifics about financial progress in Provo.
- As Utah’s 2nd oldest metropolis (started in 1850), Provo has often been and continues to be the center of Utah County / Utah Valley
- Biggest City in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
- Middle for education and learning, medical, federal government, transportation, hospitality
- Interesting, livable, historic downtown (the only a single in Utah County)
There are far more than 20,000 incorporated communities in America. When several are prospering, other people are struggling. Provo Town is location the city common, not just locally, but nationally, as demonstrated by its becoming named the nation’s 2001’s Most effective-Run Town.
So what is the magic formula sauce that Provo Metropolis has dislined that has acquired them the moniker “Central Business enterprise District of Utah County?”
Metropolis leaders phone it “The Provo Edge.” What really do not you know about Provo? You can sign up for a monthly email at ProvoConnect.com to obtain out.
Every person has a tale. I strongly come to feel that “stories have power”. Possibilities are that if you are going through something, that another person else possibly has as perfectly. The shared encounters we human beings have can aid every single other. That my friend tends to make the point that stories “help us comprehend each other.”
You really do not have to concur with everybody, but in my view, if folks would consider a lot more time receiving to understanding extra about other folks and where by they are coming from, we just might find out that we have much more similarities than variations.
