City of Brooklyn Center Presents the Green Lights Initiative

February 28 @ 5:30 pm-7:30 pm


Minnesota’s Projected Census 2020 undercount for Brooklyn Center is 7,156. As part of our effort to prevent an undercount in our community we are initiating an engagement program to bring friends, neighbors, businesses and families together from all walks of life in support of the 2020 Census. Anyone choosing to participate (resident, property owner, building manager, business, renter, etc.) Will receive a Green LED light bulb, while supplies last. The free green light bulb will be available at various city buildings, schools and partnering non-profits for residents to pick up so that they may switch out their porch lights starting Friday, February 28. Each evening beginning in February through April, green lights will be lit around the Brooklyn Center Community.

The lights are a symbol that the Brooklyn Center community:

  • Believes everyone matters and will be counted starting April
  • Encourages an open dialogue about Census 2020

The entire community is invited to join the Mayor, City Council and staff at “The Green Lights Initiative” Kickoff Celebration on Friday, February 28, 2020 from 5:30pm-7:30pm in front of Brooklyn Center City Hall. During that time we will be lighting various city buildings green in recognition of Census 2020. Please dress for the weather and prepare to have fun.
