The Local Economy Coalition(LEC) held it first meeting on February 2nd to explore the economic regional sustainability goals and the role of the LEC.  The goals originated with the Peak Alliance for a Sustainable Future’s “Pikes Peak Region 2030” regional sustainability plan, which was finalized in May 2012.

Green Cities Coalition, the parent organization for the LEC, has working groups or coalitions aligned with different aspects of the regional sustainability plan. Launched in 2008, the Green Cities Coalition is a grass-roots organization aimed at creating partnerships and encouraging collaboration among the people and organizations working for sustainability in the Pikes Peak Region.
