City of Belvedere

Salary: $ 11,718 – $14,243 Monthly

Deadline to Apply: Continuous – Open Until Filled.

Are you an energetic, forward-thinking professional in the field of planning and building looking for a leadership role? Are you a self-starter with exceptional communication skills who excels at working with staff and public officials to provide excellent service for members of the community? Are you a leader that prioritizes collaboration and employee development? If so, the City of Belvedere welcomes your application for Planning and Building Director.

The successful candidate will be responsible for managing and directing the activities of the City’s Planning and Building Department, including current planning, advance planning, design review, environmental planning, zoning, plan review, permit issuance, building and construction inspection, code enforcement, and related activities and services. Responsibilities include being responsive to a highly involved and educated community that holds the City organization to a high standard of service and accountability. Design review and permitting of renovation projects large and small (requiring administrative approval or action by the Planning Commission) requires a significant amount of the Director’s time. With limited support staff, the Director of Planning and Building meets with applicants, makes site visits, reviews plans and specifications, evaluates neighborhood and community impacts, writes comprehensive staff reports, and presents well-reasoned recommendations to the Planning Commission. Depending on the size and type of project, design review approvals are handled at either the administrative level or by the seven-member Planning Commission which holds hearings on a monthly basis. The City of Belvedere is 99.9% residential and completely built out.

Regional Government Services and its staff are conducting the recruitment on behalf of the City of Belvedere.
