Lakewood passes 50% mail participation in 2010 Census

More than 51% of Lakewood residents receiving their 2010 Census forms in the mail have sent them back to the US Census. Nearly 70% of the residents the Oakbrook and West Lakewood areas have returned theirs. Springbrook, Tillicum and Woodbrook are lagging with participation rates in the upper 30% range. Please return your Census form by April 23rd to avoid a visit from a census worker. The fewer of these visits that need to be made, the less the Census costs, and that is savings for all of us.
