The City of Asheville is looking for ways to improve community engagement in Asheville.
Recognizing the important role of neighborhoods in the fabric of a healthy community, the City has been and remains committed to connecting with people at the neighborhood level. Over the past 10 years, the Neighborhood Coordinator position has been a key communicator and relationship builder.
We are in the process of hiring for this role, after former Neighborhood Coordinator Marsha Stickford’s retirement. The position is a key role in the Communication and Public Engagement Division and complements engagement efforts by sharing information and receiving input from neighborhoods and stakeholder groups. In partnership with all departments, the position coordinates community engagement in City programs, plans and decision-making processes.
