It could be time for a "re-direct." Hear from Ted Knowlton of the Wasatch Front Regional Council and UCAIR's Thom Carter as they discuss what teleworking could mean as we plan for growth in Utah's cities and towns.

He also explains grants and other opportunities to use what we've learned to make positive, permanent changes.
