(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you generate up and down interstate 15, I promise you’ve noticed Brandon Fugal’s name on symptoms. As the Chairman of Colliers Worldwide, Brandon is what I like to get in touch with the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to economic trends.
One of the most significant traits Brandon likes to discuss about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Organization District.” We frequented about a new developing mounting in downtown Provo known as “Freedom Commons,” and is the initially “Class A” business office area building in Provo in about a ten years (view the online video to get the rest of the specifics).
My objective with Jessop’s Journeys is to discover “people, sites and factors you might not know about.” Brandon shared the following specifics about economic advancement in Provo.
- As Utah’s 2nd oldest metropolis (launched in 1850), Provo has normally been and carries on to be the middle of Utah County / Utah Valley
- Major Town in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
- Center for instruction, healthcare, federal government, transportation, hospitality
- Fascinating, livable, historic downtown (the only one in Utah County)
There are additional than 20,000 incorporated communities in The united states. Whilst numerous are prospering, other folks are battling. Provo Metropolis is placing the town normal, not just regionally, but nationally, as demonstrated by its being named the nation’s 2001’s Greatest-Operate City.
So what is the secret sauce that Provo Town has disprotected that has gained them the moniker “Central Business District of Utah County?”
City leaders simply call it “The Provo Benefit.” What do not you know about Provo? You can signal up for a regular email at ProvoConnect.com to obtain out.
Absolutely everyone has a story. I strongly truly feel that “stories have power”. Likelihood are that if you are likely via a thing, that somebody else probably has as well. The shared encounters we human beings have can assistance each individual other. That my buddy tends to make the level that stories “help us have an understanding of each individual other.”
You really don’t have to concur with everyone, but in my feeling, if people would take a lot more time having to recognizing more about many others and where by they are coming from, we just could possibly locate out that we have much more similarities than discrepancies.
