(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you push up and down interstate 15, I guarantee you have noticed Brandon Fugal’s title on signals. As the Chairman of Colliers Intercontinental, Brandon is what I like to contact the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to economic trends.
Just one of the largest developments Brandon likes to communicate about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Company District.” We visited about a new constructing rising in downtown Provo called “Freedom Commons,” and is the initial “Class A” business house building in Provo in around a 10 years (enjoy the video clip to get the relaxation of the information).
My purpose with Jessop’s Journeys is to uncover “people, places and items you may not know about.” Brandon shared the adhering to points about financial growth in Provo.
- As Utah’s 2nd oldest metropolis (launched in 1850), Provo has always been and continues to be the center of Utah County / Utah Valley
- Greatest Town in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
- Heart for schooling, health-related, federal government, transportation, hospitality
- Fascinating, livable, historic downtown (the only just one in Utah County)
There are more than 20,000 integrated communities in America. Even though several are prospering, many others are struggling. Provo Metropolis is placing the city normal, not just locally, but nationally, as demonstrated by its staying named the nation’s 2001’s Best-Run City.
So what is the solution sauce that Provo City has disprotected that has gained them the moniker “Central Company District of Utah County?”
City leaders connect with it “The Provo Benefit.” What never you know about Provo? You can indicator up for a regular e mail at ProvoConnect.com to locate out.
Every person has a story. I strongly come to feel that “stories have power”. Probabilities are that if you are heading as a result of something, that an individual else almost certainly has as nicely. The shared experiences we people have can help each and every other. That my mate will make the issue that stories “help us fully grasp every single other.”
You really do not have to concur with everyone, but in my belief, if people today would consider extra time obtaining to figuring out a lot more about some others and where they are coming from, we just may uncover out that we have extra similarities than distinctions.
