Senior Planner (Project/Program Manager III)
Senior Planners work under the supervision of a Product Line Manager to produce or help produce timely, accurate, quality reviews and approvals of land use and building permits. Working in a collaborative manner, Senior Planners work with a higher degree of independence than do Assistant or Associate Planners. They apply their years of current planning experience to review a variety of permit types ranging from single-family projects to complex commercial or infrastructure projects, but may work more often on complex, high profile, and/or time-sensitive projects. Senior Planners are responsible for carefully reviewing permit application plans and technical documents; working cooperatively with others in the department and in other agencies; and writing technical permit approval documents and staff reports that are clear, accurate, and defensible. Senior Planners may assist in developing code amendments; participate occasionally in long-range planning assignments; and, as directed, may be a technical resource for and provide workflow guidance to other planners. An essential part of the job is to work positively and in a solution-oriented manner with customers, their design/engineering professionals, other members of the public, and co-workers. Some presentations to the public, hearing bodies, and other agencies will be required on a periodic basis.
