Five Utah County Mayors Convene to Discuss Commercial Activity within Their Respective Municipalities
AMERICAN FORK, UT (March 27, 2015)–For decades business leaders in the private and public sectors have met in Salt Lake City to address crucial issues impacting economic growth throughout Utah. With Silicon Slopes further solidifying its position as a global destination point for business, a gathering place unique to Utah County quickly emerged as a necessity for commercial real estate professionals seeking advanced insight into the area’s rapid growth trajectory and accelerated development course.
As the number one brokerage in Utah County commercial real estate, CBC Advisors joined the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce to host the first annual Utah County Commercial Real Estate Symposium at the Utah Valley Convention Center. The 2015 Symposium highlighted the future of commercial development, regional business accomplishments, growth patterns, industry trends, economic projections, and potential obstacles specific to the Utah County commercial real estate market.
A keynote panel of five Utah County mayors culminated the event. Mayor Bert Wilson of Lehi, Mayor Mike Daniels of Pleasant Grove, Mayor Richard Brusnt of Orem, Mayor John Curits of Provo, and Mayor Richard Moore of Payson responded to commercial growth questions posed by panel moderator, Brandon Fugal. Discussion topics included incentives for business developers, unique municipal infrastructure, multi-family development, and economic obstacles. A transcript highlighting the discussion was published by the Daily Herald.
