The City of Coon Rapids created the community coordinator position in June 2018 to advocate for and
strengthen the community. A community coordinator was the overwhelming choice among 95 individuals
who participated in a visioning exercise in February 2017 designed to help civic and community leaders
focus on the needs for the future of Coon Rapids.
The community coordinator is the primary public
relations representative of the community. She advocates for the community on behalf of the Coon Rapids
Development Group, Creating Great Places and the City of Coon Rapids and promotes the community by
working with regional and statewide entities. The goal of this position is to strengthen the community as
well as the relationships between local businesses, CRDG, Whiterock Conservancy, CRMU, Creating
Great Places, CR-B School District and the city.
