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 warranty you have found Brandon Fugal’s title on signals. As the Chairman of Colliers Intercontinental, Brandon is what I like to get in touch with the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it comes to financial tendencies.

A person of the biggest tendencies Brandon likes to chat about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Small business District.” We visited about a new creating rising in downtown Provo known as “Freedom Commons,” and is the 1st “Class A” place of work room constructing in Provo in above a 10 years (observe the video clip to get the rest of the specifics).

My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to obtain “people, places and issues you may possibly not know about.” Brandon shared the next points about financial expansion in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest town (founded in 1850), Provo has constantly been and carries on to be the middle of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Major Town in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Center for instruction, health care, government, transportation, hospitality
  • Enjoyable, livable, historic downtown (the only one particular in Utah County)

There are extra than 20,000 incorporated communities in The usa. Even though lots of are prospering, other individuals are having difficulties. Provo Town is setting the metropolis conventional, not just locally, but nationally, as shown by its becoming named the nation’s 2001’s Ideal-Run Metropolis.

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

City leaders simply call it “The Provo Benefit.” What do not you know about Provo? You can indicator up for a regular monthly email at ProvoConnect.com to obtain out.


All people has a story. I strongly come to feel that “stories have power”. Odds are that if you are heading by one thing, that an individual else almost certainly has as effectively. The shared encounters we individuals have can assist every single other. That my close friend will make the position that stories “help us have an understanding of each other.”

You do not have to agree with all people, but in my feeling, if people today would consider more time getting to knowing far more about other people and where by they are coming from, we just may well discover out that we have more similarities than differences.
