Summit Creek’s home region of central Utah is grabbing headlines, yet again. In a recent article, Axios reported the Milken Institute’s 2021 ranking of big metropolitan areas with the best regional economies, which features our very own urban outpost of Provo, Utah outperforming 2020’s top contender of San Francisco, California.
According to Axios, the pandemic has pushed people away from hyper-urban hubs into less dense areas with economic vitality. Big cities like Seattle, San Jose, San Francisco, Reno and Dallas have fallen out of the top rankings for job creation, wage growth and innovation—and Provo, Summit Creek’s largest city within driving distance, is topping the new charts.
Located just 30 minutes north of Summit Creek, Provo is a vibrant destination for residents, offering amazing restaurants, cafes, shops and Brigham Young University. Provo’s exciting socioeconomic growth will invite more capital, more job opportunities and raise the standards of living in the region. Renewed interest in Provo means Summit Creek residents can look forward to more commerce and entertainment emerging in the area. And while more lively weekends in town are on the horizon, residents can still come home to a quiet, nature-steeped community, high above the hustle and bustle.
