The Senior Planner (SPF82018) will be responsible for management, oversight, and implementation of CMAP’s forthcoming Truck Routing and Community Studies, a project to investigate truck mobility and investment needs in three of the region’s industrial and logistics clusters. As North America’s freight hub, northeastern Illinois experiences large amounts of truck movement, with significant impacts on the region’s economy, as well as local congestion, safety, and quality of life. The project will focus on improving truck routing across jurisdictions, in addition to addressing local permitting processes, delivery management, and community impacts as appropriate to the cluster. Throughout the project, the planner will be expected to emphasize the recommendations of ON TO 2050.
The ideal candidate for this position will demonstrate knowledge about the interactions between infrastructure, land use, goods movement, and regional public policy. Preference will be given to those who possess strong ability to collect and analyze data, manage research, oversee consultant work, conduct outreach, and communicate findings to a broad range of audiences. The candidate should demonstrate an interest in the complex challenges addressed by long range planning. This is a new position with the opportunity to shape goods movement planning and policy in North America’s freight hub.
