Whether 1,000 or 5,000 or 20,000 you will wear the hat of Planning Director (or some similar title - town planner in my current incarnation). You will review development plans, draft zoning by-laws, create short and long range plans. You may also wear the hat of Economic Development Director, or conversely Growth Management Director depending upon the attitude of the town. You will make presentations to the town government, establish department budgets and a whole host of activities that will benefit you regardless of where you go in the future. Who knows if you really like the place, you might spend your entire career in this one location.imaplanner said:Thanks for the input people. But maybe I should clarify that I may be considering a REALLY small town of like 1,000. That is what worries me a little in that even though it would be a great opportunity to do just about all aspects of land use planning - it might really pigeon hole me and my future. Yet at the same time I am sort of pigeon holed in my current job.
