New year, new decade also mean new census

With the end of a decade comes the return of the U.S. Census.
The current plan is for the Census to start on April 1, 2020.
“The next census in 2020 will require counting an increasingly diverse and growing population of around 330 million people in more than 140 million housing units,” U.S. Census Bureau officials said.
City’s role
The city of Imperial has completed its role in the census, supplying maps to the U.S. Census Bureau.
“We make sure (the maps) have the city limit boundaries correct and if anything needs to be added,” City Clerk/Administrator Jo Leyland said. “We continue to be involved as the process goes on so we can get as accurate a count as possible. As far as boundaries and city limits, we haven’t changed anything,” she added.
One addition to city maps was paperwork for the Cornerstone properties, since that development is new since the 2010 census.
“It’s a new development, but it’s still within city limits, so there wasn’t much he (Jason Tuller) had to do,” Leyland said.
