Party at the Point: Dear Residents, We regret to announce that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the guidelines issued by the State of Utah, the difficult decision has been made to cancel this year’s Party at the Point Celebration.  It is with great sadness to bring you this news, but we believe that it is what is best for our community. As the State and Davis County have transitioned from the “Orange” to “Yellow” phases, a mass gathering of this size does not appear to be likely. Although we will eventually move to the “Green” phase, we feel that canceling the event is the right  decision to ensure the safety of all of our residents. The Party at the Point has always been a day that we come together as a community to celebrate Independence Day and is a long-cherished tradition for many of our residents. Even though things are different this year, West Point City wants to encourage you to still to celebrate Independence Day and the pride we have for our nation, while staying within the guidelines put in place by the State and County. While canceling this event is hard and sad, we want to share with you a few things we are still planning to do! For many years we have referred to our celebration as “Party at the Point” and we love this party. Since we can’t celebrate as a community, this year we have changed that saying to be “Party at Some Point”! It probably won't be until next year, but WE WILL have the City celebration we know and love again. We will be offering pre-ordered “Party at the Some Point” t-shirts for $10.  Shirts must be ordered online by June 15th and will be mailed directly to your home before July 4th! CLICK HERE TO ORDER! Additionally, we are currently planning to hold the following events, and may be able to add more in the coming weeks: Art Contest Baby Contest (video submission, judged by the Miss West Point Royalty) Chalk Festival Most Patriotic Street (or group of homes) Contest We thank you for your understanding and support as we navigate through this difficult situation. We look forward to celebrating Independence Day all together at the 2021 Party at the Point which will be held on Saturday, July 3rd!

Census 2020

In mid-March, residents will receive invitations to complete the 2020 Census. They should respond in 1 of 3 ways: online, by phone, or mail.

Why It’s Required

Getting a complete and accurate census count is critically important. That’s why your response is required by law. If you do not respond, the U.S. Census Bureau will follow up in person to collect your response.

Why is the census so important?

The results are used to determine how much funding local communities receive for key public services and how many seats each state gets in Congress. State and local officials also use census counts to draw boundaries for congressional, state legislative, and school districts.

And while you are required by law to participate, the Census Bureau is also required by law to protect your answers. Your responses are used only to produce statistics. The Census Bureau does not disclose any personal information.

Counting Everyone in the Right Place

To ensure a complete and accurate count, the Census Bureau counts people at their usual residence, which is the place where they live and sleep most of the time, with a few exceptions. People who do not have a usual residence should be counted where they are on Census Day (April 1, 2020).

How Can You Verify That Someone Is a Census Worker?

Census takers will visit homes in April to conduct quality check interviews, and then in mid-May to help collect responses.

If someone visits your home to collect information for the 2020 Census, check to make sure that they have a valid ID badge, with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date. Census workers may also carry Census Bureau bags and other equipment with the Census Bureau logo.

If you still have questions about their identity, you can contact your Regional Census Center to speak with a Census Bureau representative.

April 1: Census Day is observed nationwide. By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. When you respond to the census, you’ll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.

May – July: Census takers will begin visiting homes that haven’t responded to the 2020 Census to help make sure everyone is counted.

December: The Census Bureau will deliver apportionment counts to the President and Congress as required by law.
