I am the director of planning for my small city. I feel completely overwhelmed most of the time, and I am fairly sure that I am being expected to take on quite a few responsibilities that would generally not fall within the scope of a planning director's job description and certainly were not on the AICP exam! For example: not only do I supervise our one planner, I also oversee the building inspector, code enforcement officer and city engineer. I handle typical planning projects, such as updating the zoning ordinance, etc., but I am also expected to coordinate road reconstruction, sewer replacement projects and other infrastructure/public works initiatives. I am supposed to manage our storm water program (we are an MS4), our IDA, and anything to do with transfer/sale/rental of municipally-owned properties. I attend planning board and zba meetings and am also expected to show up at city council meetings whenever they want me. And the latest project to be dumped on me - coordinating the city's capital budget. Does all this sound normal/typical? I would really like to know what other planning directors are expected to do - please, please share job descriptions and experiences!
