The Pikes Peak Area Complete Count Committee has opened the Southern Region Census Office at 3015 S. Academy Blvd.

The committee, chaired by former City Councilor Merv Bennett, will coordinate local efforts to count every person living in El Paso and Teller counties as part of the constitutionally required Census conducted every 10 years. Census data dictates the number of U.S. House seats in each state, as well as levels of federal funding for roads, schools and other public services.

Meantime, the U.S. Census Bureau has been holding hiring events throughout Colorado as part of its goal to hire 500,000 Census takers across the country. 

Editor's note: This post was updated to correct a typo in the Census Office address.
