Potential City Cenus
The City of Naperville may conduct a special census to add nearly 5,000 people to the city’s population count. The current official population is set at 141,853 based on the 2010 census. By conducting this special census, the city would aim to add more people based on growing and new subdivisions, a move that could add over $1.6 million in state and federal tax revenue. The Naperville City Council will discuss the possibility of a special census at their meeting on Tuesday.
