Thank you for your interest in becoming a Plan Ambassador!

Alternate responses to this call for plan ambassadors, such as oral presentations, will be accepted as needed.

What is a City Plan Ambassador?

City Plan Ambassadors are volunteers who will play a critical role in shaping the future of our community. As an Ambassador, you will be trained and empowered to lead conversations within your own social circles about land use, transportation planning, sustainability, city services and other topics.

You will receive facilitation training and discussion materials to go into your neighborhood, work place, or social space to talk with your friends and neighbors. We’ll also provide help with facilitation and other resources (childcare, translation, help finding a meeting space) if you need them.

All over Fort Collins, people will be gathering to talk with each other, share ideas, and guide the development of the City Plan update. Anyone can help lead these conversations – all you need is a bit of free time and an interest in hosting great conversations.

Ok, I’m in. What do I have to do?

We estimate that the total time commitment for a Plan Ambassador will be about 20 hours over the course of 10 months. And it’s easy to get started!

  1. First of all, apply below! We will be accepting applications until February 16, 2018.

  2. Attend two training sessions. Training for Plan Ambassadors will only take about 5 hours total and will take place on two evenings in late February/early March 2018.

  3. Host 3 gatherings (1-2 hours each) over the course of the next 8-9 months. In March, you will host your first gathering to talk about the community vision for the future of Fort Collins. The next two gatherings will focus on scenarios for achieving the community vision and the actual policies and implementation of City Plan.

After each of your gatherings, we will ask you to share notes and input from your conversation. The input we receive after each meeting will help shape the direction of the next stage in the planning process. It will also help us understand the issues our community is facing, our shared goals, and what approaches we could take to achieve a community vision for the future.

Thank you for your interest. We can’t wait to start planning the city’s future with you!
