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 guarantee you’ve found Brandon Fugal’s title on indications. As the Chairman of Colliers Intercontinental, Brandon is what I like to phone the “keeper of the crystal ball” when it arrives to financial developments.

Just one of the biggest tendencies Brandon likes to communicate about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Business District.” We visited about a new making increasing in downtown Provo termed “Freedom Commons,” and is the initially “Class A” workplace room building in Provo in above a ten years (watch the movie to get the rest of the facts).

My target with Jessop’s Journeys is to obtain “people, locations and factors you could not know about.” Brandon shared the subsequent points about economic expansion in Provo.

  • As Utah’s 2nd oldest city (started in 1850), Provo has normally been and carries on to be the centre of Utah County / Utah Valley
  • Major Metropolis in Utah Co. – 120,000 pop.
  • Heart for education and learning, health-related, governing administration, transportation, hospitality
  • Interesting, livable, historic downtown (the only just one in Utah County)

There are more than 20,000 incorporated communities in The usa. Though numerous are prospering, other individuals are struggling. Provo Metropolis is environment the metropolis standard, not just regionally, but nationally, as proven by its remaining named the nation’s 2001’s Greatest-Operate Town.

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

City leaders call it “The Provo Benefit.” What really do not you know about Provo? You can signal up for a regular monthly electronic mail at to come across out.


Absolutely everyone has a tale. I strongly experience that “stories have power”. Probabilities are that if you are going through one thing, that an individual else probably has as nicely. The shared encounters we people have can assistance every other. That my mate helps make the level that stories “help us recognize each individual other.”

You do not have to concur with all people, but in my opinion, if individuals would get much more time having to being aware of far more about other folks and wherever they are coming from, we just may well come across out that we have extra similarities than differences.
