Joni Marsh Named Longmont Assistant City Manager

Post Date:12/26/2019 8:39 PM
Longmont City Manager Harold Dominguez has named current Director of Planning and Development Joni Marsh as Assistant City Manager. Marsh, who joined the City of Longmont in 2001 as aJoni Marsh planner, replaces former Assistant City Manager Shawn Lewis, who accepted a City Manager position in Englewood in June. 

“Joni has served the City with distinction since joining the organization as a planner in 2001,” Dominguez said. “Her drive and commitment, coupled with her planning background, align strongly with the City’s current needs and made her a clear choice for this role.” 

Marsh earned her Master’s in Public Administration from Montana State University and has 22 years of municipal government experience. She is currently the President Elect to the Colorado Chapter of the American Planning Association and serves as the Planning Section Chair for the Colorado Municipal League. She has been a Longmont resident since 1999. 

In her new position, Marsh will be focused on external services for the organization, working alongside fellow Assistant City Manager Sandra Seader, who heads up internal and shared services.  

“I am excited to take on these new responsibilities, and continue to serve our Longmont community,” said Marsh. “It’s an interesting time to be a planner in Colorado. I look forward to working with Council and staff on initiatives that support our partner organizations in job retention and growth while supporting housing and transportation options for our entire community.” 

Marsh will oversee redevelopment and economic development, transportation planning, the Longmont municipal airport, planning, facilities, building services, and application support. 

Dominguez has taken the opportunity to restructure parts of the organization to better support its current and future operational needs. Because of the workload in the areas of planning and development, Dominguez wanted to create more operational capabilities while bringing some of the reporting relationships directly to the City Manager’s Office. The Director of Planning and Development position will be eliminated as part of the restructuring, and a Planning Director position will be created. Marsh will continue to lead the planning team until a Planning Director is hired.  

“As we stand on the threshold of 2020, we’re looking to ensure a bright future for Longmont,” Dominguez said. “Joni will be a key player as we head into the next decade and reach 100,000 residents in our City.”
