BRAINERD CITY COUNCIL: 2010 Census data reveals Brainerd making some growth, still improving in other areas


Postponed from the last Brainerd City Council meeting March 5, Brainerd City Planner Mark Ostgarden presented the results from the latest American Community Survey (ACS), assessed in 2010.

Information produced every year since 2010, Ostgarden said the ACS will be able to help see how Brainerd compares to not only surrounding cities, but the state of Minnesota and the United States as a whole.
