2010 Census Meeting July 8th

The 2010 Census is coming, and your participation will really make a difference in our community. The US Census Bureau is changing its approach to the 2010 Census by bringing together a cross-section of community leaders and utilizing their combined knowledge, expertise, and influence to increase awareness about the census and motivate residents to respond. This will be accomplished through the formation of a Complete Count Committee.

The Complete Count Committee is established by local government and community leaders who work together to develop and implement a census awareness plan that targets the unique characteristics of our area. We would like to invite you to participate in an information kick-off meeting.

Why is our involvement in the 2010 Census so important? As community leaders, each of us is impacted by the information gathered through a census. Besides important marketing and demographic information, congressional seats and legislative boundaries are determined by the population data gathered from the census. Additionally, federal funding is allocated for public transportation, Title 1 grants, road rehabilitation and construction, Head Start programs and programs for the elderly and disabled. Accurate population counts are crucial to ensuring that our communities receive the proper representation in both the legislature and in federal funding allocations.

The kick-off meeting of the City of Big Bear Lake Complete Count Committee will be held on Wednesday, July 8, from 9:00-11:00 a.m. in Hofert Hall at the Civic Center, located at 39707 Big Bear Blvd. in the City of Big Bear Lake.

Representatives from the US Census Bureau will be there to discuss the activities and strategies we can use to ensure that local residents are informed about the importance of the census before the information is circulated nationally. The more informed residents are about the 2010 Census, the better their understanding of the process and thus, the greater their willingness to participate.

The future is in our hands, and I hope to see you on Wednesday, July 8, 2009 at this very important informational meeting of the City of Big Bear Lake Complete Count Committee. Please contact me at (909) 866-5831 if you have any questions or require additional information regarding this matter.

Philip K. Mosley, Jr., C.B.O.
