Census regional planning scheduled

Published 8:23 am Saturday, June 3, 2017

Special to The Leader

The Southeast Texas Regional Planning Commission and the U.S. Census Bureau cordially invites everyone to the “Road To 2020” Thursday, June 8 from 10 a.m.-noon at the Southeast Texas Regional Planning Commission at the Homer E. Nagel Conference Room in Beaumont located at 2210 Eastex Freeway.

The next census in 2020 will require counting an increasingly diverse and growing population of around 320 million people in more than 140 million housing units.

To get an accurate count, the Census Bureau must build an accurate address list of every housing unit, maximize self-response to the census, and efficiently follow up with those who do not respond.

Come and learn from U.S. Census Bureau Partnership Specialist Rebecca Briscoe on what your community needs to do to get ready such as timeline, geography programs, critical state and local government Involvement and jobs and recruiting.

To RSVP, please click Road to 2020.For more information call or email Rebecca Briscoe at (409) 504-0569 or Rebecca.m.briscoe@census.gov.
