(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you drive up and down interstate 15, I warranty you have viewed Brandon Fugal’s name on signs. As the Chairman of Colliers Worldwide, Brandon is what I like to phone the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it comes to economic developments.
A person of the greatest trends Brandon likes to communicate about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Small business District.” We visited about a new setting up mounting in downtown Provo known as “Freedom Commons,” and is the 1st “Class A” office environment place creating in Provo in about a 10 years (enjoy the online video to get the relaxation of the particulars).
My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to find “people, destinations and factors you may not know about.” Brandon shared the following details about financial advancement in Provo.
- As Utah’s 2nd oldest city (established in 1850), Provo has generally been and continues to be the middle of Utah County / Utah Valley
- Largest Metropolis in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
- Heart for training, health-related, authorities, transportation, hospitality
- Remarkable, livable, historic downtown (the only a person in Utah County)
There are a lot more than 20,000 integrated communities in The usa. Although several are prospering, other individuals are battling. Provo Metropolis is location the town normal, not just domestically, but nationally, as demonstrated by its staying named the nation’s 2001’s Ideal-Operate City.
So what is the secret sauce that Provo Metropolis has disincluded that has acquired them the moniker “Central Business District of Utah County?”
City leaders simply call it “The Provo Benefit.” What never you know about Provo? You can signal up for a monthly e-mail at ProvoConnect.com to obtain out.
Everybody has a tale. I strongly sense that “stories have power”. Probabilities are that if you are likely through anything, that somebody else probably has as well. The shared experiences we people have can aid just about every other. That my good friend makes the point that stories “help us recognize each other.”
You do not have to agree with everybody, but in my feeling, if persons would take additional time having to figuring out much more about other folks and where they are coming from, we just could possibly discover out that we have extra similarities than variations.
