The Nelsonville City Council voted at their September 27, 2021 meeting to challenge the 2020 Census for the City of Nelsonville. The 2020 Census recorded the population of Nelsonville as 4,612 people. The Census recount will take place over the next two weeks. The only information that will be needed from residents is the names of all persons living in a household. No other information will be required.
The City of Nelsonville will hold a Census recount meeting today Tuesday, September 28, 2021, at 2:00PM, at Nelsonville City Hall, 211 Lake Hope Drive. We understand that this meeting is sudden but there is a two-week limit on the recount. The meeting will discuss planning, volunteer recruitment and information on how to relay the message to all the Nelsonville Citizens. We will hold other meetings soon if you are not able to attend today’s meeting. The public is encouraged to attend.
