If you want to make a difference, Brea is the place for you.

Located in north Orange County California, Brea is a close-knit community that hosts over 100,000 people each day while offering exciting entertainment and dining opportunities for both residents and visitors alike.  Brea is known for its innovative and creative approach to providing city services.  We pride ourselves on being what government should look like.  Our employees are our most valuable asset and all are highly encouraged to participate in visionary and problem-solving collaborative exercises to generate the strategies that make Brea the attractive destination that it is.  We’re looking for employees who want to see their contributions make a difference in people’s lives.  Come join Brea's team as a Senior Planner in the Community Development Department. 

THE SENIOR PLANNER performs complex professional work in the field of current or advanced planning and environmental analysis; supervises current or advanced planning projects; and performs related duties as assigned.  This is an advanced journey level classification.  Work in this classification is distinguished from that of an Associate planner by the greater complexity of assignments received and by the greater independence and scope of decision making with which the incumbent is expected to operate.  This classification may act as the City Planner in his/her absence. 

Qualifications:

  • Four years of increasingly responsible experience in urban planning with a concentration in current planning and/or advanced planning.  One year of supervisory experience, and extensive experience with a California city, are desirable.
  • Equivalent to a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university with major work in urban or regional planning, architecture, or a related field considered useful in city planning.
