The U.S. Census Bureau has announced that it will be opening a new area
office in Mesa on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 1102 N. Higley, Suite 101. A "Spirit of
Community Celebration" grand opening ceremony will be held at 2 p.m. with
remarks from Mesa Mayor Scott Smith and others.
"The new office will help emphasize the key messages that the 2010 Census is
easy, it's safe, and it's important!" Mesa Mayor Scott Smith said.
"Counting every Mesa resident is important because the information
determines the dollars Mesa gets back from the state and federal
governments. Mesa's Complete Count Committee, along with this office, will
work hard to make sure that everyone is counted."
The new office will be one of only five in the Valley and will serve as the
primary field office for a region which encompasses Mesa and parts of Pinal
County including the Gila River Indian Community. The office will house the
recruiting and support staff for more than 1,000 door-to-door census takers
who will canvas assigned locations, update address listings and obtain
demographic household information through interviews. For more information
