(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you travel up and down interstate 15, I warranty you’ve witnessed Brandon Fugal’s identify on symptoms. As the Chairman of Colliers Global, Brandon is what I like to phone the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it will come to economic trends.
1 of the most significant traits Brandon likes to discuss about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Organization District.” We frequented about a new developing growing in downtown Provo termed “Freedom Commons,” and is the to start with “Class A” business room creating in Provo in over a decade (enjoy the video clip to get the rest of the details).
My objective with Jessop’s Journeys is to uncover “people, places and points you may not know about.” Brandon shared the next info about financial development in Provo.
- As Utah’s 2nd oldest city (established in 1850), Provo has always been and continues to be the heart of Utah County / Utah Valley
- Major Town in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
- Centre for instruction, healthcare, govt, transportation, hospitality
- Remarkable, livable, historic downtown (the only just one in Utah County)
There are far more than 20,000 integrated communities in The usa. Even though many are prospering, some others are struggling. Provo Metropolis is environment the town typical, not just regionally, but nationally, as proven by its becoming named the nation’s 2001’s Very best-Operate Metropolis.
So what is the magic formula sauce that Provo City has disincluded that has attained them the moniker “Central Small business District of Utah County?”
City leaders get in touch with it “The Provo Benefit.” What don’t you know about Provo? You can indication up for a month-to-month e-mail at ProvoConnect.com to discover out.
Everybody has a story. I strongly truly feel that “stories have power”. Likelihood are that if you are likely by means of a little something, that another person else possibly has as effectively. The shared encounters we human beings have can help each and every other. That my pal makes the issue that stories “help us have an understanding of every single other.”
You never have to concur with everyone, but in my opinion, if people would consider more time finding to understanding much more about other folks and where by they are coming from, we just could possibly uncover out that we have much more similarities than variances.
It’s my honor to be able to share, Jessop’s Journal, a 30-minute collection of Highly effective, Good and Inspirational Tales each and every Sunday morning at 10 a.m. on ABC4 to all of Utah together with components of Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado and Arizona.
