2020 Census:
What you need to know
Every ten years the Census Bureau has counted every resident in the United States.
What is this so important?  The data that will be collected from the 2020 Census is critical for States, Counties, and Communities for:
Representation.  Census Data determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as districts for State government.
Funding.  Census Data guides federal spending allocation of approximately $589 billion to local communities every year.
Full participation in the upcoming 2020 Census will provide our community vital information about who we are and what our community needs.  It will take all of us coming together to ensure every Lindstrom resident counts.
Keep in mind all information gathered is kept confidential according to Title 13, U.S. Code which clearly states It is against the law to disclose or publich any private information that identifies an individual or business, including names, addresses, GPS coordinates, Social Security Numbers, and telephone numbers. The Census Bureau collects information to produce statistics.
Key things to keep in mind as we approach the 2020 Census are if you travel during the winter, be sure to use that State of your permanent residency as you complete the form.  Every housing unit will received a post card to respond online from the Census Bureau.  Also, keep in mind that the Census form will not be mailed to PO boxes.  If you have use of a PO Box for mail, you will need to look for your Census form on your doorknob.


 Through much thought and deliberation for the health and safety of residents and visitors and with much regret, it has been determined to cancel this year's Harmony in the Park (click here for updates on Harmony In The Park  Facebook page)  and traditional 2020 Karl Oskar Days (click here for updates on KOD Facebook page) events.  The intent of these events is to bring crowds of people together which is exactly what is detrimental right now due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.  In addition, both events would be held during the peak of the Coronavirus in Minnesota that is expected to be the end of June to mid-July.  We sincerely appreciate and thank our sponsors.  Donations that have been received for 2020 will roll over to the 2021 season unless designated otherwise.  We look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.  Until then, stay safe and healthy.

Also, continue to check the KOD Facebook page and the City's website to find our what virtual and non-virtual activities for Summer fun events and engagements.

... America's Little Sweden

Incorporated in 1894, Lindstrom MN was first settled by Daniel Lindstrom who left Sweden for America in 1853.  Among the Swedish Emigrants was Erik Norelius, whose personal journals (documented in part) formed the basis of Vilhelm Moberg's novels of the Swedish Emigration to America.  Moberg's fictional heroes, Karl-Oskar and Kristina Nilsson, are memorialized in statue at the west end of town as a tribute to the early Swedish immigrants whose descendents continue to populate our area.
