The League of Women Voters Jeffco will present a free panel discussion on local efforts toward sustainable communities, Oct. 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Golden Community Center, 1470 10th St., Golden. Focusing on renewable energy, panelists will discuss what’s been accomplished, what’s in progress and why it’s important.

After review by League members and if time permits, questions will be answered.

League Sustainability Committee member Pat Mesec said the committee began asking communities nine years ago what their plans were to work toward a sustainable community.

“Now we have gone back and asked the same question with the hope that some initiatives and accomplishments will be shared at this meeting,” she said.
