Provo is Utah County’s Central Business District. Brandon Fugal on Jessop’s Journeys

(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you generate up and down interstate 15, I assurance you have noticed Brandon Fugal’s title on signals. As the Chairman of Colliers Global, Brandon is what I like to get in touch with the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it comes to economic traits.

A person of the biggest tendencies Brandon likes to communicate about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Enterprise District.” We frequented about a new creating rising in downtown Provo referred to as “Freedom Commons,” and is the 1st “Class A” place of work area constructing in Provo in over a decade (check out the video to get the relaxation of the details).

My purpose with Jessop’s Journeys is to uncover “people, sites and issues you could possibly not know about.” Brandon shared the following details about financial advancement in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest town (launched in 1850), Provo has constantly been and carries on to be the centre of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Biggest City in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Heart for education and learning, medical, governing administration, transportation, hospitality
  • Fascinating, livable, historic downtown (the only just one in Utah County)

There are much more than 20,000 included communities in The usa. Though several are prospering, other folks are having difficulties. Provo Town is placing the town regular, not just domestically, but nationally, as demonstrated by its getting named the nation’s 2001’s Ideal-Operate City.

So what is the magic formula sauce that Provo Metropolis has discovered that has gained them the moniker “Central Enterprise District of Utah County?”

Town leaders call it “The Provo Benefit.” What never you know about Provo? You can indication up for a regular monthly e mail at ProvoConnect.com to obtain out.


Every person has a story. I strongly truly feel that “stories have power”. Chances are that if you are likely as a result of something, that another person else probably has as perfectly. The shared ordeals we humans have can support just about every other. That my mate tends to make the stage that tales “help us understand every single other.”

You really don’t have to concur with absolutely everyone, but in my opinion, if men and women would acquire more time finding to being aware of far more about other folks and wherever they are coming from, we just may possibly find out that we have far more similarities than variations.
