LUCA is for the good of the entire town, and the role of the person who takes 
the lead for LUCA really depends on what's best for the town.  So far I've 
seen a diversity of Clerks, Listers, ZAs, Planners, Admins, E-911 Coords and 
more identified as the LUCA liaisons for their town.

Whomever YOUR town may designate as the LUCA liaison, I would hope that 
you consider participating.  The deadline to send your registration materials 
back to the Census Bureau is December 31st.  If you need to have the 
registration materials re-sent to you, please let me know.

More information is available at

LUCA is a unfunded federal request of local governments on behalf of the 
Census Bureau.  It's a bureaucracy asking a big favor of our towns, in other 
words.  But it's also an important opportunity.

Participating in LUCA is the most proactive contribution that a local 
government can make to the completeness and accuracy of your Census 
data.  Towns who feel they have been undercounted by the Census in the 
past should take note!

The Vermont State Data Center and Vermont Center for Geographic 
Information are planning to provide assistance and a "starter file" to towns to 
make participating in LUCA much easier.  I urge you to learn more by going to

Also PLEASE remember:

The deadline for a town to register for LUCA is December 31, 2007.

If you have lost or never received the full LUCA registration form for your town 
from the Census Bureau, please contact me immediately!
