Concerns Regarding 2020 Census Data and the General “Northfield” Designation

We have received a number of calls from residents, who are concerned that federal funding allocations will be hindered because the Census 2020 notifications are being mailed, for the 44067 zip code, to the general “Northfield” designation (and not, specifically, to Northfield Center).   Township staff spoke with the area Census 2020 representative and were assured that, “The Census uses a master zip code list to send out the invitations; so the zip code may have a title, but your residents should not worry because the actual addresses are geo-coded in the correct district.  So, residents are counted where they live and the district they live in.”  In other words, the data for Northfield Center residents WILL be coded to Northfield Center, and not to the general “Northfield” designation.
