Stephenville is located in the heart of North Central Texas in Erath County. A city of 23,120 friendly people in 11.79 square miles, Stephenville is an inviting, gracious community with a rich western heritage in a beautiful country setting along the Bosque River. It is distinctively Texan: independent, hardworking, and intelligent. Known as the “Cowboy Capital of the World” as its home to more professional rodeo cowboys and cowgirls than anywhere else, and the “City of Champions” as it’s committed to excellence in youth and civic organizations, Stephenville takes pride in having a small-town charm, where a strong work ethic, family values, and a giving heart is the foundation of the community. Stephenville serves as the county seat and principal commercial, medical, retail, and industrial center of 45,670 county residents. It has four major highways and a prime location 100 miles southwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Stephenville’s City Planner is responsible for managing planning and development projects, which include research, analysis, preparing plans, reports, studies, and presentation of data. This position performs technical planning duties requiring detailed examination as well as excellent writing, organizational, and presentation skills. The City Planner works under the general guidance and direction of the Director of Development Services and does not have any supervisory responsibilities. The chosen candidate must be a good fit for the organization and have the ability to multi-task. Municipal experience is a plus.

The City Planner analyzes and evaluates zoning and development proposals by applicable code, ordinances, policies, and design guidelines and makes presentations to the Planning and Zoning commission and the City Council. The City Planner also works with zoning and development applicants and their representatives throughout the review process; maintains open and effective communications with zoning and development applicants, City staff, and the residents of Stephenville; compiles and analyzes data on economic, social, and physical factors affecting land use; and prepares graphic and narrative reports on data.

This position requires a bachelor’s degree in civil planning, urban planning, urban development, public administration, geography, architecture, or a related field. The selected candidate must have three to five years of professional planning experience in municipal government, significant experience in plan/plat review, zoning administration, and building code experience, and advanced knowledge of GIS. An American Institute of Certified Planner (AICP) certification is preferred.  A combination of related education, experience, certifications, and licenses may be reviewed and considered.
