Your Participation in the 2020 Census is Important & Will Be Kept Confidential!

The Town of Lake Park encourages EVERYONE to participate in the 2020 Census.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR LAKE PARK SPECIFICALLY:

Do you have a child in school (Lake Park Elementary; Lake Park Baptist; or other) and would you like to see the school programs improve? If yes,
YOU MUST RESPOND TO THE CENSUS!

Would you like the Town to provide additional recreational activities and possibly a community center environment for everyone to enjoy? If yes,
YOU MUST RESPOND TO THE CENSUS!

Would you like the Town to assist small businesses so that they can thrive in our community and provide the needed services to residents? If yes,
YOU MUST RESPOND TO THE CENSUS!

Would you like to the Town to be able to improve its roadways and install additional streetlights? If yes,
YOU MUST RESPOND TO THE CENSUS!

Would you like the Town to bring more activity to our park areas? If yes,
YOU MUST RESPOND TO THE CENSUS!

Are you a member of one of our non-profit groups (Lake Park Kiwanis; Bridges; Parent 2 Parent; or any other), or a member of a local Church (St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran; Bethlehem Baptist; First Baptist; or any other) and would like to see the Town contribute more to these organizations? If yes,
YOU MUST RESPOND TO THE CENSUS!

With an approximate Town population of 8,600(& rising!), this can generate an additional $13 MILLION+ dollars that can be used to improve the Town. Planning for the FULL population and not underestimating the need for programs and services is very important, DON’T BE LEFT OUT! If yes,
YOU MUST RESPOND TO THE CENSUS!

In March of 2020, the Federal government will begin asking people a list of questions to complete the 2020 Census. The census is conducted every 10 years and is mandated by the U.S. Constitution.

THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IS PROTECTED AND CAN ONLY BE USED BY THE CENSUS!

Every year, more than $675 billion goes toward hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and much, much more. This is why YOU MUST be counted!

By April 1, 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You'll then have three ways to respond: online, by phone and last resort, by mail.

Your responses to ALL the following questions are kept confidential and the Census Bureau is bound by federal law to protect your information and data and is authorized for statistical purposes only.

Questions may include:

  • How many people are living or staying at your home on April 1, 2020. This will help count the country's population, and ensure that we count people once, only once, and in the right place according to where they live on Census Day. If you are living, or staying in a Lake Park residence on April 1, 2020, you CAN and SHOULD be counted!
     
  • Whether their home is owned or rented. This will help produce statistics about homeownership and renters. The rates of homeownership serve as one indicator of the nation's economy. They also help in administering housing programs and informing planning decisions.
     
  • About the sex of each person in the household. This helps generate statistics about males and females, which can be used in planning and funding government programs. The data can also be used to enforce laws, regulations, and policies against discrimination.
     
  • About the age of each person in the household. Similar to recording the sex of each person, the U.S. Census Bureau creates statistics to better understand the size and characteristics of different age groups. Agencies use this data to plan and fund government programs that support specific age groups, including children and older populations.
     
  • About the race of each person in the household. This will help produce statistics about race and to present other statistics by racial groups. This data help federal agencies monitor compliance with anti-discrimination provisions, such as under the Voting Rights Act and Civil Rights Act.
     
  • About whether a person in the household is of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin. These responses help create statistics about this ethnic group. This is needed by federal agencies to monitor compliance with anti-discrimination provisions, such as those under the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act.
     
  • About the relationship of each person in the household to one central person. This allows the Census Bureau to create estimates about families, households, and other groups. Relationship data are used in planning and funding government programs that support families, including people raising children alone, and other households that qualify for additional assistance.
     

The Census Bureau IS NOT INTERESTED IN and will NEVER ask you for:

  • Your Social Security number.
  • Money or donations.
  • Anything on behalf of a political party.
  • Your bank or credit card account numbers.
  • Your immigration status.

TOWN OF LAKE PARK COMMISSION CHAMBERS

535 PARK AVENUE
LAKE PARK, FL 33403

Notice is hereby given that The Town of Lake Park will hold a second public visioning workshop to discuss revising the Town Code of Ordinances for the C-3 District as well as the Comprehensive Plan. Town staff and the Town’s consultant, Dover, Kohl & Partners, will be available to take questions from members of the public and receive their input. This agenda item will be a visioning workshop only and no formal action will be taken.

BACKGROUND

On October 30th, 2019, the Town Commission approved a contract with Dover, Kohl & Partners to update the Town’s land development regulations for the C-3 Zoning District and the Comprehensive Plan. These changes are intended to facilitate the redevelopment of the former Twin City Mall site as a walkable, mixed-use lifestyle center and compliment  the vision of the Village of North Palm Beach, who has jurisdiction over the eastern portion of the site. On December 4th, 2019, a public outreach workshop was held to discuss these proposed changes. As part of their contract, Dover, Kohl & Partners will continue to work with staff to conduct community outreach and receive public feedback on the C-3 District and Comprehensive Plan updates. The upcoming January 25th meeting will provide residents from both the Village of North Palm Beach and the Town of Lake Park with additional information on the conceptual plan for the Twin City Mall site and allow them to give direction to the consultant and staff on how best to evolve the plan to meet their wants and needs.

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS

Please direct inquiries regarding this workshop to Anders Viane who may be contacted at 561-881-3320, at aviane@lakeparkflorida.gov, or in person at the Community Development Department located at 535 Park Avenue.
