City of North Liberty appoints Neighborhood Ambassadors

NORTH LIBERTY– The City of North Liberty welcomed 41 residents to its Neighborhood Ambassador program. They are the first volunteers selected for the new program and are key players in the city’s Great Neighborhoods Initiative.
The new on-the-ground local leaders are passionate about advancing the quality of life for their neighbors. Officially beginning in January 2021, their duties include partnering with the city to help close the information gap between the city and residents, building community through group activities and projects, and connecting neighbors to each other and to community resources. More information about how residents can connect with the ambassadors will be available in January.
Ambassadors were selected from applications submitted in September and October. The Communications Advisory Commission and city communications staff found the selected ambassadors to be responsive and community minded, valuing diversity and wanting everyone in North Liberty to feel welcome and recognize the importance of information equity. There were more qualified applicants than spots available, as the number of ambassadors in each neighborhood is relative to the number of households in each neighborhood, with the goal to achieve balanced resident engagement across the city.
A few vacancies are included in the roster below. Interested residents residing in the areas are encouraged to learn more and apply at https://northlibertyiowa.org/residents/great-neighborhoods/.
