Given all the new housing and complaints about growing traffic congestion, it would seem that Cypress Park had attracted more residents in recent years. But the results of the 2020 Census indicate that the opposite is true.
Instead of rising, the number of people living within within the boundaries of the Greater Cypress Park Neighborhood Council dropped by 13% since the 2010 count, according to an analysis of 2020 US Census. That’s the biggest percentage loss of any of the city’s 99 neighborhood councils.
