Utah tops Forbes list for business - Experts say ranking will help attract companies, bring jobs to the state

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...ness.html?pg=1

"This kind of a ranking … changes the conversation that we can have with companies," Edwards said. "Companies and consultants watch these rankings very carefully."

He said being rated the best state for business should pay significant dividends in the long run and help the state's economy grow in the coming years.




The Best States For Business And Careers - Utah tops our fifth annual ranking, knocking longtime leader Virginia from the top spot.

Kim Badenhausen

When voters in 37 states select their governors next month, the overriding issue will be, of course, the economy.

A recent CBS News poll found that 54% of adults think the economy and jobs are the most important problem the U.S. is facing today. Health care ranked a distant second, with 7% of the tally. Almost every state experienced decreased output, a loss of jobs and budget shortfalls during the economic downturn. Nationwide employment has declined by 7 million jobs over the past two years while gross domestic product growth has been sluggish this year after a 2.6% drop in 2009. No state has emerged unscathed.

But some areas are doing better than others, and for many of them, it isn't an accident. Who's doing the best job when it comes to fostering growth? Utah, according to our fifth annual look at the Best States for Business. The Beehive State captured the top spot in our rankings for the first time, after a four-year run by Virginia at the head of the list.

The Best State For Business

Utah's economy has expanded 3.5% annually over the past five years, faster than any other state except North Dakota. This is three-and-a-half times faster than the U.S. as a whole. Total employment in the U.S. has shrunk over the past five years, but in Utah it increased 1.5% annually, fourth-best in the nation. Household incomes have surged 5% annually, which is tops in the country and twice as fast as the national average.

"We have a fiscally conservative government where we are trying to keep government off your backs and out of your wallet. We want the free market to do what it does best," says Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, a Republican running for a full term this year after taking over the job in August 2009, when then Gov. Jon Huntsman was appointed U.S. ambassador to China.

Southern Metro ~ Joaquin Village Project

Joaquin Village Begins Construction

New housing for over 900 students coming to Provo

The Deseret News

PROVO — R&O Construction has begun work on Joaquin Village, a new student housing project located at 600 E. 600 North in Provo. It will offer room for more than 900 Brigham Young University students in two buildings that have three to five levels situated over one level of underground parking.

A model apartment will be ready for viewing in early 2011.

The complex will include an exercise area and swimming pool.

Salt Lake City ~ Soccer Complex Project

Soccer complex moving toward construction

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...struction.html

...Dave Spatafore, a Salt Lake City resident and lobbyist, says the new soccer facilities "will do wonders for our competitive youth leagues here in the city."

"Some (recreation) leagues will play there, but it will be a great economic engine for tournaments coming into the Salt Lake Valley," Spatafore said...

Downtown CCC - Retractable Roof

From observation (diagram below) it looks like the weight of the roof is all on the red-wheel that rides on the
red-track. The south ends of the roof sections go up and down because the green-wheel rides along the slanted
green track.



As they pulled the 3 roof sections back, we got a few shots:


On Wednesday, they also lifted the east-arch into place:

Renovation - U.'s nursing building targets faculty shortage - Training for nurses and instructors takes a giant step forward

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/7...-shortage.html


Nursing center's recent upgrade includes less brick, more windows for modern look. (Scott G. Winterton, Deseret News)

There are almost 700 nursing students at the U., about half undergraduate and half graduate, including 64 on their way to PhDs.

"This is a great school," Cumming said. "They're doing some really innovative, high-tech things. (This building) is going to be one of the stars of the whole university."

She and her husband live in Wyoming, but they wanted to contribute to the building because "our hearts are still here."

The redesigned building has enough energy-saving features and recycled materials to earn gold Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

University of Utah Honors Housing at Legacy Bridge



Found this for the new Honors Housing at the University of Utah, it looks like it will be pretty awesome, and a drastic improvement on the existing parking lot it will replace. Very excited for this building!

walking to class from the dorms are already making a detour around the soccer field. Hopefully this doesn't force
students to walk down South Campus Drive or jaywalk instead of crossing the bridge.
