The Office of Planning and Community Development is primarily responsible for land use planning and code enforcement. The Director provides day to day leadership, management and development of staff in a complex regulatory work environment. Work involves the exercise of considerable judgment resolving sensitive land use and development issues within County, State, Federal and Tribal guidelines, policies and codes.
