(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you push up and down interstate 15, I warranty you’ve found Brandon Fugal’s name on signals. As the Chairman of Colliers Global, Brandon is what I like to contact the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it comes to financial tendencies.

A person of the most significant tendencies Brandon likes to speak about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Enterprise District.” We visited about a new developing rising in downtown Provo termed “Freedom Commons,” and is the 1st “Class A” office environment area making in Provo in in excess of a decade (look at the online video to get the rest of the facts).

My intention with Jessop’s Journeys is to discover “people, locations and factors you may well not know about.” Brandon shared the pursuing information about financial development in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest city (established in 1850), Provo has usually been and carries on to be the center of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Greatest City in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Center for instruction, medical, authorities, transportation, hospitality
  • Remarkable, livable, historic downtown (the only a person in Utah County)

There are more than 20,000 included communities in America. Even though numerous are prospering, others are battling. Provo Town is setting the town common, not just domestically, but nationally, as demonstrated by its getting named the nation’s 2001’s Greatest-Operate Town.

So what is the secret sauce that Provo Town has discovered that has attained them the moniker “Central Business District of Utah County?”

Metropolis leaders call it “The Provo Benefit.” What really do not you know about Provo? You can indication up for a regular monthly e-mail at ProvoConnect.com to find out.


Every person has a tale. I strongly sense that “stories have power”. Chances are that if you are going by one thing, that somebody else possibly has as perfectly. The shared ordeals we individuals have can enable each and every other. That my buddy can make the place that tales “help us comprehend just about every other.”

You do not have to agree with absolutely everyone, but in my viewpoint, if people would take more time getting to realizing a lot more about many others and where by they are coming from, we just might uncover out that we have more similarities than variances.
