'Everyone Counts' in 2018 Spring Hill Special Census population update

Special Census 2017

The City of Spring Hill, one of the fastest growing municipalities in the state, is again conducting a special census to certify the growth in population our city has added in recent years.

It’s important to verify the latest population, and imperative that all residents respond, because of the State-shared tax revenues our city receives for each certified resident. For fiscal year 2017-18, the state is paying cities about $123 per resident in State-shared revenues.

The additional revenues received for added population will allow the City to provide much needed services, such as police, fire protection, library services, Public Works, and expansion of our roads and parks.

The population of Spring Hill, last certified at 36,530 after the last special census in 2015, is now estimated at over 40,000 residents, based on housing permits and utility hookups in recent years, said Assistant City Administrator Chuck Downham. The City issued 699 new residential building permits in 2016, and is currently on track to exceed that amount in 2017.

“Based on building permits alone, it’s estimated that we have added roughly 3,600 new residents since the last census, which would put us at over 40,000 residents,” said Finance Director Jim Smith. “At approximately $123 per person, that amounts to an additional $442,000 per year in new State-shared revenues. If the census costs $150,000 – that’s the amount we have budgeted – we would still be ahead in the following fiscal year by $292,000, and we would collect the full additional $442,000 every year after that.”
