City of Bozeman
The principal function of an employee in this class is to apply professional standards to planning, administration, coordination, research and implementation of community planning, development, and revitalization. The work is performed under the supervision and direction of the Planning Department Managers, but considerable leeway is granted for the exercise of independent judgment and initiative. This class is distinguished from the class of Planner II by additional duties such as program or advanced project management, and advising other Planning staff members associated with assigned duties. The nature of the work performed requires that an employee in this class establish and maintain effective positive working relationships with the Community Development Director, other City employees, Municipal, State and Federal officials, representatives of neighborhood organizations, business and community organizations and the public. The principal duties of this class are performed in a general office environment.
