The Town of Addison, TX offers the energy, vibrancy, entertainment, and commerce of a large city – but all in a compact 4.4-square mile package that is clean, easy to use, friendly, and accessible. This unique urban enclave boasts more than 180 restaurants, 23 hotels, upscale living, unique retail shops, and more than 12 million square feet of office space. In Addison, It All Comes Together!

Addison is a full-service, home rule town operating under a council-manager form of government. The Director of Development Services reports to one of the Town’s two Deputy City Managers. The Director manages the operations of the Development Services Department including Planning and Zoning, Building Inspections, Code Enforcement, and Environmental Services. The Director serves as the liaison to the Planning and Zoning Commission and Board of Zoning Adjustment. While the incoming Director will lead the Development Services Department, the existing team is comprised of strong division heads, each effectively managing their respective areas.

The Town seeks a detailed visionary, outside-the-box thinker to become the Director of Development Services. The selected individual must hold a bachelor's degree in Public Administration, Urban Planning, or a related field and five years of experience in planning and community development.

Experience in implementing large scale master plan development is highly desired.
