Salary Range: Commensurate with level hired
The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) is seeking to hire an analyst in the Policy Development division who will specialize in analysis to support the programming of transportation improvements in the region. CMAP is the official regional planning organization for the northeastern Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will. CMAP developed and now guides the implementation of metropolitan Chicago's comprehensive regional plan, GO TO 2040, which was adopted unanimously by leaders from across the seven counties in fall 2010. To address anticipated population growth of more than 2 million new residents, GO TO 2040 establishes coordinated strategies that help the region’s 284 communities address transportation, housing, economic development, open space, the environment, and other quality-of-life issues. See www.cmap.illinois.gov for more information.
The GO TO 2040 regional comprehensive plan emphasizes the importance of making transportation investment decisions based on rigorous criteria rather than on arbitrary formulas. Since the plan was adopted, CMAP has been exploring ways to enhance transportation programming in the state and region, including the agency's own funding programs. The policy and program analyst will be responsible for developing and executing methods to identify transportation system needs and to evaluate expected project performance. The ideal candidate for this position will have strengths in quantitative and qualitative policy analysis, both of which are central to performance-based programming.
