Your weekly Bulletin of governmental and advocacy news for North Carolina cities and towns has arrived, and here's what you'll find this week: the General Assembly returns for a brief session; a legislative committee discusses local economic tiers; the Census Bureau schedules workshops of interest to local governments; congressional districts get another shakeup; a Jacksonville city leader joins a national committee; and our podcast checks out the "sharing economy." But first, a quick explanation for why the Bulletin looks so different this week. Read on for more.
The Census Bureau is conducting Boundary and Annexation Survey workshops in three locations across North Carolina next month: Wilmington, Feb. 12; Durham, Feb. 13; and Charlotte, Feb. 14. The workshops will provide an overview of the 2020 Census Geographic Partnership Programs, the 2018 BAS, and demonstrations for creating a digital and paper response for completing the BAS. To register please RSVP by emailing your name, phone number, workshop location and BAS participation method type to firstname.lastname@example.org with a generic subject of: RSVP to [Insert City, State] BAS Workshop, by Feb 5.
