Lake Forest is an Idle-Free Community

The City of Lake Forest has officially passed a resolution to be a vehicular Idle-Free Community. This voluntary act encourages residents, guests, visitors and other individuals within the city limits not to exceed a three-minute idling time in their gas-powered vehicles. 

If you missed our Coffee, Conversation, and Composting event,
here is a helpful video by League member and Master Composter Marion Cartwright on using an Earth Machine:

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Who We Are and What We Do

The League of Women Voters believes responsible government should be responsive to the will of the people, promote the conservation and development of natural resources in the public interest, share in the solution of economic and social problems that affect the general welfare, promote a sound economy, maintain an equitable and flexible system of taxation, and adopt domestic policies that facilitate the solution of international problems.

Voter information, education, registration, and support for voters.
Observation and study of local governmental entities. Issue-based advocacy in our community, in Illinois, and in Washington D.C.
Nonpartisan sponsorship of candidate debates and forums.
In-depth education about current issues facing voters in local, state, and national elections.
