A single of the biggest traits Brandon likes to discuss about is Provo. In accordance to him, “Provo is Utah County’s Central Business enterprise District.” We frequented about a new making climbing in downtown Provo referred to as “Freedom Commons,” and is the initially “Class A” workplace space setting up in Provo in over a 10 years (view the video to get the rest of the information).

My aim with Jessop’s Journeys is to discover “people, places and factors you may not know about.” Brandon shared the adhering to details about economic development in Provo.
