City Calendar Featuring Trinity River Corridor –
Due to budget considerations, the 2010 City of Dallas Calendar and Annual Progress Report will not be printed this year. However, both publications are now available on-line on the City’s home page at www.dallascityhall.com.
This year’s calendar features the winning photographs selected out of the 350 images entered into the Trinity River Photo Contest. The images in this calendar reflect how locals see the Trinity -- through their eyes and their camera lenses. The City saw the contest as an opportunity to make a difference in a number of ways: to encourage people to get outdoors and experience the amazing natural resources we have in Dallas, to provide a fun and easy project for school age children during the summer months, to showcase the Trinity River Corridor Project, and to help photographically document the vast area this project encompasses because changes are coming to many of these locations in months ahead.
You will find the Calendar and Annual Progress Report icon and link on the upper right hand side of the City’s internet home page. The direct link is: http://www.dallascityhall.com/calendar2010/index.html
Add this link to your “Favorites” today! We hope you enjoy the images and information in this on-line resource throughout 2010.
Get Ready To Be Counted in 2010!
In March, begin looking for the 2010 Census form. When you receive it at your home, do not delay, fill out the quick and easy form and return it via mail to the designated address. The goal is to count everyone by the deadline which is April 1, 2010. Keep in mind, the questionnaire responses should represent the household as it exists when you receive the form.
Every year, more than $400 billion in federal funds are awarded to states and communities based on census data. The number equates to more than $4 trillion distributed over the 10-year period between census counts. Help Texas get its fair share!
“The census numbers we take and submit to the president on December 31, 2010 is the total we must work with for the next 10 years!” stated Councilmember Pauline Medrano. She is the National Census Advisory Committee Vice Chair for this census.
Everyone needs to work to be counted!
