Are the population cycles in gateway communities always a boom or a bust? Dr. Don Albrecht from the Western Rural Development Center at Utah State University joins researchers from across the country to share insights into the current population, mobility, and migration trends in western gateway communities and their surrounding regions. The team will discuss how COVID-19 may influence these trends and the implications of amenity migration on how we all live, work, and play.
