Planning and Development Connectors Office of Community Engagement Connectors

The City of Raleigh Community Connector Program hires residents who are trusted voices in the community to help expand the reach of Raleigh’s engagement efforts. Community Connectors are natural relationship builders, eager to share information, committed to finding solutions, bring their lived experience and engage positively and professionally with the general public. Connectors spend their time learning about city resources and sharing project-specific information with impacted residents and businesses.

Planning and Development Connectors

The Planning and Development Department hires paid volunteers, called Community Connectors, to help with public outreach for various projects and cases. The department looks for trusted leaders in the community that they can partner with to create a direct method to cultivate the two-way exchange of information and strengthen the relationship between city departments and the community.  

Planning and Development has Community Connectors for projects such as Southern and Western BRT Station Area Plans. The department also has community connectors for the Rezoning Program. Connectors are hired and trained according to specific standards and applicants must indicate which role they are interested in.
