(DOUG JESSOP – JESSOP’ JOURNEYS) If you generate up and down interstate 15, I guarantee you have observed Brandon Fugal’s identify on indicators. As the Chairman of Colliers International, Brandon is what I like to phone the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it comes to financial traits.

One of the largest trends Brandon likes to chat about is Provo. According to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Business District.” We frequented about a new making growing in downtown Provo called “Freedom Commons,” and is the very first “Class A” business space setting up in Provo in around a decade (watch the video clip to get the rest of the information).

My target with Jessop’s Journeys is to uncover “people, places and items you could possibly not know about.” Brandon shared the pursuing details about economic 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
  • Premier City in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Heart for training, clinical, govt, transportation, hospitality
  • Thrilling, livable, historic downtown (the only one in Utah County)

There are much more than 20,000 integrated communities in The usa. Even though quite a few are prospering, other folks are struggling. Provo Town is location the city typical, not just domestically, but nationally, as proven by its remaining named the nation’s 2001’s Finest-Operate City.

So what is the magic formula sauce that Provo Town has disprotected that has earned them the moniker “Central Business District of Utah County?”

Metropolis leaders get in touch with it “The Provo Gain.” What don’t you know about Provo? You can sign up for a regular monthly electronic mail at to uncover out.


Absolutely everyone has a story. I strongly experience that “stories have power”. Likelihood are that if you are heading by way of one thing, that an individual else in all probability has as nicely. The shared experiences we humans have can aid each and every other. That my good friend will make the point that stories “help us realize every other.”

You never have to concur with anyone, but in my feeling, if men and women would just take additional time getting to recognizing more about many others and where they are coming from, we just may well discover out that we have far more similarities than differences.
