Community Planning Association of Southwest Idaho (COMPASS) has an opening for a Principal Planner. The Principal Planner will have a key role in the team developing COMPASS’ regional long range plan, Communities in Motion (CIM). CIM looks 20+ years into the future to help ensure the system of roads, bridges, and transportation services in Ada and Canyon counties is ready to support a healthy and vibrant region. CIM focuses on integrating four transportation components (bicycle/pedestrian, freight, public transportation, and roadways) so they work together to form a complete, efficient transportation system. The Planner will likely have a specific focus on one or more of these components at certain periods, but should expect to contribute to planning efforts around all components throughout the regional long range planning cycle. The Planner may also work across several other planning disciplines, including but not limited to, congestion management, corridor/small area studies, and economic/community development. For details on the position, please see the job description on the COMPASS website: http://compassidaho.org/people/jobs.htm
To apply, please send an email with “Principal Planner” in the subject line that includes a cover letter and resume to: email@example.com
