Census 2020

Gearing up for the 2020 Census

Together We Count

The census opens March 12, and can be completed online at  Those not completing the census by April 1 will be visited at home by Census Bureau workers. Being counted in the census is as important as voting. Data collected is used to allocate funding, resources, and political representation.

The local Census 2020 outreach efforts, led by 16 governmental bodies and bolstered by 250 local entities and individuals, is pursuing creative ways to attract the interest of our “hard to reach” populations.  Called A2PCCC for “Aspen to Parachute Complete Count Committee,” these leaders hail from business, institutions, governmental entities, media, nonprofits and chambers.  They have identified seniors, seasonal workers, those without post office boxes, accessory dwelling residents, employee-unit residents, children and Latinos as populations that require additional awareness of census facts plus innovative ideas to incentivize them to participate.

Research has revealed that parents can be confused about whether they should count their children.  To combat that perception, the A2PCCC committee is collaborating with the Roaring Fork Schools to help inform students and families about the importance of the census and making sure everyone is counted.

Stop for the bus

Keep Our Children Safe

Stop and Wait for the School Bus

The Snowmass Village Police Department watches school buses closely to make sure our children stay safe. Recently, they have noticed an increase in drivers passing school buses illegally. Not only will this result in a fine and penalty of up to six (6) points against your license, it is dangerous. 

On a two lane road without a separated median, traffic in both lanes, in both directions, are required to stop for the bus. Traffic should begin to stop when the bus lights flash yellow. Traffic must remain stopped while the flashing red lights on the bus are present. Please take a minute and stop for the school bus. You can find details on the school bus stopping law in the Colorado Drivers Handbook.
