Assistant / Associate Planner

Assistant / Associate Planner

Assistant Planner - This is the entry level class in the Planner series. This class is distinguished from the journey by the performance of the more routine tasks and duties assigned to positions within this series. Employees at this level are not expected to perform with the same independence of direction and judgment on matters allocated to the journey level. Since this class is typically used as a training class, employees may have only limited or no directly related work experience. Employees work under immediate supervision while learning job tasks.

Associate Planner - This is the journey level class within the Planner series. This class is distinguished from the Assistant Planner by the assignment of the full range of duties. Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies within the work unit. Positions in this class are flexibly staffed and are normally filled by advancement from the entry level.

Each position requires efficient work habits, strong written/oral communication skills, analytical thinking, high standards for providing customer service, and the ability to handle complaints and problem-solve under pressure. The Assistant Planner serves as project manager for various planning and zoning applications, prepares reports and exhibits for public hearings, and assists in investigating zoning violations.

Join an outstanding team of professionals and enjoy working in a premier community. Opportunities for professional growth and advancement.
