As of April 14, the Green Impact Zone is lagging a little behind the national average in the number of census forms that have been mailed back. The national average is 67 percent, and our neighborhoods range from 54 to 64 percent return rates. Have you mailed your census form yet? If not, please do so right away. An accurate count will help people and neighborhoods in the zone receive the services, funding and representation we’re entitled to over the next 10 years.

If you need help completing the census form, contact your community ombudsman today. Call 816-936-8803.
