Tompkins County Department of Planning and Sustainability

The Department of Planning and Sustainability currently has an opportunity to add two new planners to our team. While our staff of eight professional planners work collaboratively across disciplines on planning as well as policy and program development and implementation, one of the Senior Planner positions will primarily focus on sustainability, energy and climate change, and the other will focus on affordable housing and community development.

We are looking for qualified and experienced people who can oversee and administer complex projects and programs. The ideal candidates will have expertise in these focus areas, however, we are primarily looking for excellent thinkers and implementers and welcome applications from people with expertise in other areas of our work program, including land use, land and water conservation, and transportation.  

Applications accepted through March 17, 2021.  A full description of the position and required minimum qualifications and application for employment may be found online. Please visit: https://www.tompkinscivilservice.org/civilservice/vacancies. To learn more about the

Please submit a resume, cover letter, and contact information for two references via email to CCT Executive Director Jennifer Dotson at jennifer@the-cct.org.
