County Green: Renewable Energy, Transportation and Water
May 23, 2013
College of Lake County – Grayslake, IL

Lake Country is one of the fastest-growing counties in Illinois and the nation. As Lake County continues to grow, so will the county’s demand for energy, transportation, and water. Accommodating growth in a sustainable manner depends on Lake County communities making choices that reduce our collective footprint.
