This is the most advanced working level in the professional Planner class series.

Incumbents are expected to continually strive to identify and remove service process barriers and be a champion of providing exceptional customer service to other County staff, businesses, and residents. This class is distinguished from the Associate Planner level in that Senior Planners are expected to perform the most complex assignments, utilize a greater degree of independent judgment and problem solving capabilities, and take on an active role in identifying and resolving customer service and permit processing constraints.

Education equivalent to graduation from an accredited college or university with major work in urban, regional, or resource planning, or a related field.
