“Planning for Sustainable Communities: Potential Lessons for Woodland” is the title of Jeff Loux’s address at the Woodland League of Women Voters’ annual community luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 19. Loux is director of the UC Davis Land Use and Natural Resource Program.

Over the past four years, the Woodland league has been hosting talks relating to climate change, sustainability and water. In his talk, Loux will give an overview of various solutions to addressing climate change issues such as transportation, housing and energy sources that can be included in designing sustainable communities and how those solutions can meld together to make a vibrant community for the future.

Janet Ruggiero, president of the Woodland league and a former colleague of Loux’s, said, “Dr. Loux is viewed by his colleagues as a formidable speaker on this subject and we look forward to him sharing his vast knowledge on sustainable design with the community.”

Loux has worked in the public, private and academic sectors for more than 30 years addressing water policy, sustainable planning/design, natural resource management and public policy dispute resolution and mediation. Recently he was awarded the 2013 James H. Meyer Distinguished Achievement Award from UCD, the highest honor for an Academic Federation member.

The luncheon will take place at the Woodland United Methodist Church, Second and North streets, and will feature the traditional menu of bean soup, cornbread, salad and carrot cake. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. with the luncheon and talk being completed by 1:15 p.m.

Tickets are $12, and advance reservations are recommended. Call 530-668-0345 or email league@woodland.ca.lwvnet.org. Sponsorships also are available.

    Gosh, maybe Woodland will ban plastic bags -- just as Davisdorf will do. Wow.
