  • Lake Forest Sustainability Plan - Environmental Issues Community Engagement Forum

    In the Lake Forest Strategic Plan, the City’s first listed Environmental Stewardship goal is to “develop a Lake Forest Sustainability Plan to identify priorities and guide future initiatives.” Acting on this goal, this past May and June 2015, the City of Lake Forest, with support from the Lake Forest Collaborative for Environmental Leadership, released a Sustainability Survey to the residents of Lake Forest. The purpose of this survey was to gain insight into the opinions of Lake Forest residents on local environmental issues and to use these insights as guidance in the creation of a Sustainability Plan.

    As demonstrated in the survey, most residents of all ages would like to see a Sustainability Plan approved by City Council that will encourage environmentally sustainable behavioral changes in the City. The survey findings show that residents tend to agree that the general sustainability of Lake Forest is a concern, including attention to water quality, energy use, and the volume of waste we create. Most who responded indicated willingness to adapting their own lifestyles – such as participating in a curbside composting program – if they are provided with more information. Overall, all residents participate in some sort of environmentally friendly

    efforts, such as recycling, and agree that environmentally sustainable practices are topics that matter to them.

    The City will continue to analyze data with a report to follow which will be available on the website www.cityoflakeforest.com. The main findings in this report will guide discussion at the October 21 Community Engagement Forum. The report, in addition to ideas presented at the Forum, will provide direction in the creation of the Lake Forest Sustainability Plan, to be completed later this year.
